InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
In today’s interconnected world, we depend to a large extent on the role that technology plays in almost every aspect of our lives; from mobile banking operations, to the security of our most critical systems. Each time a greater number of people are interconnected and the relationships by electronic means increase exponentially. The increased use of technology also increases the volume and sophistication of threats. In fact, it is estimated that 1.5 million attacks occur annually, which means 3 cyber attacks per minute. Criminals constantly seek to exploit new vulnerabilities to steal money, intellectual property, identities or classified information, both at the company level and at the governmental level. This challenge is compounded by the lack of borders in cyberspace, that allows to commit crimes at a great distance; therefore, it is imperative to address the issue from different areas in order to design, implement and implement the measures that are necessary to protect the security of cyberspace users.
Latin America has one of the fastest growing Internet user populations in the world, which presents a significant number of cybersecurity challenges.
For this reason, CYBERSEC is presented as an event whose mission is to promote dialogue and provide a platform for the exchange of information, trends, experiences and cooperation among individuals, industry, academia and security experts throughout the continent. At the same time, CYBERSEC 2018 will have an exhibition that will showcase the latest in cybersecurity technology, equipment and services.
