Featured Session: How We Get Hacked and What Can We Do To Stop It?

Mar 12, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

We’re aware there’s risk online, but we don’t know what to do about it. Hackers today are global enterprises taking advantage of vulnerabilities across 13 billion connected devices. The FBI found in 2020 Americans lost more than $4.2B to digital crime. And consumers are woefully unprepared to protect themselves. In fact, most tools available to them were designed to defend a desktop computer on a dial-up modem. We need a new approach.

Featuring a live hack, this session brings together a self-proclaimed digital idiot - Jeffrey Katzenberg- a cybersecurity innovator- Hari Ravichandran- and a hacker - Rachel Tobac- to unpack how hackers steal your information, what they use it for and what innovations in technology will put consumers ahead of the cybercriminals for the first time in history.
