Real world reactions and issues – implications of cybercrime, real impacts on larger scale events, the changing requirements and our ability to respond (just to name a few). Not just doom and gloom, but solutions and the positives that can emerge.
This will be interactive and your questions are not only desired but expected. Life’s real not scripted!
