Corporations & Businesses Events Need to Be Protected

    Corporations & Businesses Events Need to Be Protected   Recently I approached Jason Koop to discuss the events industry & my concerns with data security. I spoke to several experts in this area including companies, as well as Claudiu Popa & Yoseph Elkaim, among other cyber security professionals & realized the need to prepare the event industry for this imminent risk. Some event technology platforms on the market have glaring security flaws many companies use today.

Corporate Events That Will Exceed Expectations
