The 15th South Sound Technology Conference to be Held March 14th, 2014

It is that time of the year.

March 14th, 2014 in William Philip Hall we will be holding the 15th Annual South Sound Technology Conference.  The event will begin at 9:00 and go until 3:00 o'clock with a great mix of speaker and panels covering the biggest trends and impact of technology and technology solutions to the South Puget Sound area.

Two scheduled tracks will cover similar topics to the last couple of years because the impact has not been waning.  One will cover information assurance and cybersecurity and the other will over how we manage and gain knowledge from the massive amount of data we are collecting.

Currently on the roster is a panel overview of the security tech audits that were conducted by Masters of Cybersecurity and Leadership graduates on several local organizations and utilities, as well as a panel discussing the breach at Target and the advent of insurance policies that cover cybercrimes.

On the big data front there will be presentations and discussions on refining predictions of consumer behavior through social network analysis and crossing my fingers for a guest speaker announcing a big project launch.
