Live stream – Technicity 2013: Focus on cybersecurity

As the Internet becomes more entrenched in the critical processes of businesses and governments the potential security threats have also become more pronounced.

That’s why today IT World Canada and the city of Toronto are spotlighting security at the Technicity 2013 conference at the Toronto Reference Library. If you can’t make it, details on how you can follow the presentations online are below.

We’ve come a long way from merely being concerned over whether a hacker could crash our computer or deface a Web site. There is now a sophisticated cyber-crime underworld where the exchange of mass collections of payment credentials change hands and an industry built around designing malware kits perfected to steal such details. Even governments are getting in on the cyber-offensive, with militarized hacking divisions and surveillance operations that make us all question whether Internet privacy even exists.

Technicity 2013 will take a deep dive into these issues and hear from cybersecurity experts in both the public and private sector. they include Michael Geist, professor of Internet and e-commerce law at the University of Ottawa; Ritesh Kotak of the Toronto Police Service; Wesley Wark, visiting professor at the University of Ottawa who specializes in intelligence services; and Greg Thompson, Scotiabank’s vice-president of enterprise security services.

Watch here live starting at 8:45 AM ET today for our all-day conference live video feed in the window below. And follow along on Twitter at #Technicity2013. You can check the agenda here.
