As the new Global Industry Marketing Manager for Financial Services at Akamai, I am truly looking forward to attending the RSA conference in San Francisco, April 20-24. It is sure to be an intense week of learning, networking and meetings with security professionals in the financial services industry from around the globe.
We are all concerned with the rise in frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks. Today’s threat landscape has far-reaching implications to the financial services industry, not only reputational and financial damage but, in some cases, legal responsibility. Our hyperconnected world means that a security breach at a few financial institutions can pose a significant threat to market confidence and the nation’s financial stability. Akamai helps you respond to those intelligent attacks with intelligent security that doesn’t slow down your site. Our cloud-based security solutions evolve as the attacks evolve, by leveraging our Intelligent Platform.
When you’re at RSA, please, stop by booth #4000. There will be plenty of opportunities to network and get to know like-minded professionals, to nurture existing relationships and build new ones. Please also join the conversation on Twitter, use #RSAC and follow @cchiodi @Akamai and join the Akamai Financial Services User Group on LinkedIn.
