Hear from our guests, who deal with cybersecurity in the field every day, including Derek Nugent, the Vice President Revenue & Business Strategy for Difenda; and for Charter, our Security Practice Lead, Krisann McDonnell; Ronnie Scott, our Chief Technology Officer; and Mark George, the Vice President, Business Transformation & Prairies Market Leader, as they explore current cybersecurity practices and case studies relevant to businesses today.

“If people are exfiltrating data out of your organization, there’s lots of telltale signs that they’re exporting emails, or they’re forwarding emails to odd places. Who is looking at your logs to just see if bad behaviour is happening? And this is where these discovery sessions highlight these gaps that no one is thinking about. And then, we can apply the control and the tool to help you deal with it.” 

- Ronnie Scott, Charter, Chief Technology Officer
