Todd Ellis, the CTO of Secure Networkers, will be attending the Washington, D.C. “Breach Prevention Summit” produced by the Information Security Media Group.

This week Todd Ellis, the CTO of Secure Networkers, will be in Washington, D.C. attending the Breach Prevention Summit coordinated by the Information Security Media Group. With presentations by an elite group of specialists in the various disciplines of internet and network security, we are there to learn the newest potential intrusions being used by hackers, and gain knowledge on the best security practices to put to use for our customers.

Tom Field, VP of ISMG Editorial staff, promises detailed looks at cyber security “…from IoT and the emerging use of deception technology, to the ever-persistent and ongoing business email compromise trend, [and] DDoS for extortion and ransomware attacks…”. Staying ahead of the cyber criminal is a never-ceasing exercise of innovating protections faster than criminals can innovate new schemes. Secure Networkers is dedicated to keeping at the head of the pack in understanding the latest methods in which data security might be breached or compromised.
