Seemingly every time we turn around there’s something in the news or on social media about high-profile companies like Target, Sony Pictures, Home Depot and JP Morgan Chase experiencing data breaches -- making them almost commonplace and lowering their shock value as a result. Yet, that’s a compelling reason why organizations need to come together and discuss how to protect their network infrastructure. It’s no... [Read More]
