Networking Refreshment Break


Cybersecurity: Protecting Yourself and Your Data
With breaches and hacking becoming increasingly frequent and large scale, protecting your travellers’ privacy and safeguarding data has become top of mind for travel managers. In this session, a Certified Ethical Hacker will reveal the tricks of the trade as to how corporate travellers are getting hacked and scammed with a focus on how this may affect policies for corporate travelers.

Terry Cutler has learned the mindset of hackers and trained in the techniques of “the bad guys” who seek to do harm to corporations and individuals alike. He is responsible for staying on top of the latest trends in cybersecurity and being an advocate for best practices in the identification and eradication of vulnerabilities that leave us susceptible to the most dangerous threats. Terry was a regular contributor on Securityweek.com’s expert panel and continues to appear on several National TV and Radio programs such as CTV, Global News, CBC National and 940am Montreal Radio and CBC Radio-Canada.

Presenter: Terry Cutler, Certified Ethical Hacker, Media Spokesperson, Internet Safety & Cyber Security Lecturer, and Founder and CTO, Cyology Labs
