LRITA 2017 Tech Conference
The Lima Regional IT Alliance has again selected the Lima Veterans' Memorial Civic and Convention Center as the venue for the LRITA.org 2017 Tech Conference scheduled for Thursday, April 13, 2017.
The LRITA.org 2017 Tech Conference planning committee invites you to join us along with our many presenters and our region's IT vendors for this premiere IT professional event. This is where we all come together in sharing the knowledge.
LRITA will host keynote presenter: Darren Kall. Title & Summary: What to Do About Human Error in Security. Human error is responsible for contributing to 95% of security incidents. Each year the threats to enterprise security grow exponentially. We're failing to engage employees in protecting valuable company assets and their private information. Technology advances and employee education alone will not eliminate this risk. You will be shocked to learn that Security, IT, and HR are taking the wrong approach to human error. And it's only going to get worse unless we do something radically different. To combat human error takes a profound understanding of why human errors continue to occur. In this talk Darren will clarify the causes of human error, show how cyberspace hackers are using a deep understanding of the psychology of people to succeed, and he will give specific recommendations for changing your model of human error so that new mitigation strategies can be produced and implemented to reduce human error in security.
As we did at last year's conference, LRITA will be hosting a special opening presentation on cyber security. The presentation will be given by the FBI in partnership with the Toledo Infragard Members Alliance. During this presentation, attendees will be updated on the hows and whys businesses are targeted and exploited through cyber attacks.
