Next IAMA Webinar: How the Retail Industry is Shaping the Future of Cyber Security
Date: Wednesday, February 17, 2016
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM (Eastern Time)
About: An estimated two-thirds of the U.S. gross domestic product comes from the retail industry. This activity has also driven the mass accumulation of payment card data that now serves as a de facto currency. The unfortunate consequence is that criminals can be more efficient hacking into computer systems to steal payment cards and other data than they would robbing a bank for cash. But retail is leading the way with innovative cyber security solutions. Join our panel of industry experts as we explore some of the cyber security technologies and issues that are shaping the future.
Our panel includes Chris Bullock, CISO @ Aarons Inc. (NYSE:AAN). Aarons is a specialty retailer with over 2,100 company-operated and franchised stores in the United States and Canada. The Company was founded in 1955 and is headquartered in Atlanta, GA.
