GTEC has announced the initial conference schedule for the 2015 event, which includes Melissa Hathaway, leading cyber security expert and cyberspace policy advisor. Focusing on the challenges and opportunities of advanced technology within the public sector, GTEC returns to the Shaw Centre in Ottawa, Oct. 19–21.
Hathaway is a leading expert in cyberspace policy and cyber security with a long track record advising U.S. and partner nation governments, global organizations and private industry. Currently serving as president of Hathaway Global Strategies LLC, she counsels on the latest in risk management, technology investments, cyber strategy, and policy.
From the GTEC 2015 Main Stage, Hathaway will explain how the Internet of Things (IoT) and information communications technology (ICT) are changing the cyber security landscape.
According to GTEC organizers, “more than ever before, a lack of stakeholder trust in these technologies is prominent both across and between different governments, corporations and citizens, affecting the digital economy and the free flow of data and services.|”
Hathaway will discuss the implications of this shift in trust on economic health and security of nations, as well as the future of citizen-essential services.
