Emerging technologies present intriguing challenges and exciting opportunities that require innovative thinking and diverse perspectives. Join us October 3rd as we take an interdisciplinary approach to exploring critical issues involving:

  • Security Vulnerability Management
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Blockchain Technologies
  • The Internet of Everything
  • Building a Global Cybersecurity Strategy and Team

A stellar line-up of leading women experts in law, technology, business, and policy will join us for a day of fireside chats and panel discussions on these important topics. Women and men from business, government, and academia are encouraged to attend.

As cities and things become more connected, as we increasingly rely on machines that learn from themselves, and as blockchain technologies produce dramatic shifts in the financial and legal sectors, some emerging technologies produce new cybersecurity solutions while others create unforeseen challenges and raise the stakes for those tasked with keeping our data safe. We will discuss key obstacles and opportunities that these emerging technologies present, and explore how the public and private sectors, and academia, can best address these issues.

Featured speakers include:

  • Lisa Monaco, Former Homeland Security Advisor to President Barack Obama
  • Shamla Naidoo, Chief Information Security Officer, IBM
  • Anne Roest, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications
  • Tarah Wheeler, Author of Women in Tech: Take Your Career to the Next Level

We will be sending out a detailed agenda and list of speakers closer to the event date. Please stay tuned, and we hope to see you there!
