Gathering at Penn State Great Valley looks at hot topics in the field
Area businesses are about to get an inside look at data security and protecting their corporations as well as customers.
Tech360 is a full-day tech experience where industry experts will share how best to protect your data, how cyber insurance plays a role and just how badly things can go wrong.
Registration is open now for the Nov. 11 event being held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Penn State Great Valley.
“This is an ideal way for IT professionals, project leaders and technology leaders to gain unbiased, innovative insights that can be used immediately. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to make local connections with the area’s top names in tech,” says Gary Smith, president of the Chester County Economic Development Council, which is presenting Tech360 in collaboration with its programs Ideas x Innovation Network(i2n) as well as Innovative Technology Action Group (ITAG).
The all-day educational event will bring together the area’s top companies, IT professionals, and educational institutions to discuss how to best leverage the latest technology in today’s economic business climate of doing more with less.
The day will start with “Real Tech Talk – Business, People, and Leadership,” a CIO Panel discussion on the latest trends and ob-
servations in data security, hiring talent, change and innovation, leading technical people and organizations and the biggest opportunities
and challenges. This year’s breakout session topics include Cybersecurity, Big Data, Network and Data Security, Agile Development, Robotics, Women in Technology, and Hiring Tech Talent.
The Innovation Showcase will return this year
with company presentations and an EXPO during lunch.
“Tech360 is relevant for so many companies that depend on secure and accurate data. Today it’s not just the IT manager who is affected by data security – it’s creeped into just about
every facet of business,” said Leah Fox, executive vice president of Technology and Services Delivery for LoanLogics.
Fox is a moderator for the Tech Leadership Panel at Tech360 and a participant on the Women in Technology Panel.
“Companies and consumers rely on secure technology for such a wide variety of applications across many digital platforms including automation, portals, dashboards, ecommerce, social media,” she said. “No one can afford a breach.”
