Wombat Security will provide CIOsynergy attendees with best practices in security awareness and training that help employees learn secure behavior.
CIOsynergy, a provider of thought leading conferences, today announced Wombat Security participation at its event on February 20, 2014 at the JW Marriott Atlanta Buckhead hotel, in Georgia.
Wombat Security Technologies provides information security awareness and training software to help organizations teach their employees secure behavior. Their SaaS cyber security education solution includes a platform of integrated broad assessments, and a library of simulated attacks and brief interactive training modules, to reduce employee susceptibility to attack, even phishing attacks, over 80%.
“We are thrilled to have Wombat Security at CIOsynergy Atlanta. As phishing and cyber security education experts, their presence will provide event attendees with an additional layer of industry insights and thought leadership,” says Patrick Mason, Director of Communications and Marketing at CIOsynergy. “This is a great opportunity for us to talk with CIOs about the importance of arming their users with the knowledge and appropriate behaviors to help organizations defend against cyber-attacks, said Joe Ferrara, President and CEO of Wombat Security Technologies.”
CIOsynergy Dallas is an exclusive opportunity for leading local CIO and IT executives to network and brainstorm daily hurdles in an unparalleled learning environment under the umbrella of tech titan keynote of the event Robert Herjavec. Mr. Herjavec has lived the classic rags-to-riches story. At the age of eight, Herjavec and his family left Croatia, sailing to Canada in hopes of creating better life. They arrived in Toronto with a single suitcase, no job prospects, $20 to their name, and dreams of success. Herjavec shared his parent’s dreams, and has had no limits. From delivering newspapers to waiting on tables to launching a computer company from his basement, Mr. Herjavec applied his immense energy and ambition with outstanding success. The firms he created proved so outstanding in their operation that they attracted companies such as AT&T and Nokia, who purchased them from Herjavec to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.
Following a short retirement, Robert launched the Herjavec Group with a focus on security, storage and virtualization. The Herjavec Group finished 2012 with extraordinary sales – placing it on the prestigious Profit 200 Ranking of Canada’s fastest growing companies for the fifth year in a row, and earning the #1 ranking as the Top Security Company in Canada on the 2012 Edition of the Branham300. Robert Herjavec, TV personality (Dragon’s Den & the very popular Shark Tank) and bestselling author (Driven & recently released – The Will To Win) will give CIOsynergy attendees an unparalleled view of his journey to become one of the world’s top innovative minds.
At CIOsynergy Atlanta, a panel of leading CIOs moderated by Scott Shuster, will share and explore how CIOs can be successful in their role. Mr. Shuster has led virtually every Business Week CEO, CFO, and CIO conference held since the founding of the magazine’s events group more than 100 of the world’s most prominent gathering of large company leaders and senior executives.
Open to Fortune 500’s and mid-market enterprise, CIOsynergy’s events gathers senior executives from the office of the CIO, including Directors, VPs, Chief Architects, CTOs and CIOs.
