GlobalSCAPE, Inc. to Address Internet of Things and Data Security at RSA Conference 2017
GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSB), a pioneer and worldwide leader in the secure and reliable exchange of business information, announces that Greg Hoffer, the Company’s vice president of engineering, will be featured as a speaker during RSA Conference 2017 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Hoffer’s session, Internet of Things (IoT) and Data’s Perilous Journey, is scheduled for Thursday, February 16 from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. PST at Moscone West, Room 2002.
IoT is a category of technology consisting of industrial, scientific, medical, commercial, and consumer devices that connect to and communicate over the internet. Recent hacks of IoT devices, including a massive attack that shut down access to many high profile websites, revealed IoT’s vulnerability as a way to compromise network and data integrity.
Hoffer’s presentation follows data on its perilous journey through the Internet of Things, from its creation, capture, transmission, aggregation, analysis and storage—a lifecycle that also involves cloud, Big Data, governance, compliance and data security. During his session, Hoffer will identify the risks involved at each stage and the ways that organizations can better prepare for and protect valuable data.
RSA Conference hosts the world’s largest security events in the U.S., Europe and Asia, collectively drawing more than 45,000 attendees each year. The mission of RSA Conference is to connect each attendee with the experts and insights needed to stay ahead of cyberthreats.
