Program Highlights and What's New

Wednesday March 22, 2017

SPECIAL PRESENTATION
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Presented by ABMA Educational Institute


Robert Siciliano - "Information / Computer Security and Privacy Protection: Defense Against Hackers, Attackers, Thieves and Organized Criminals"




There is a reason why we keep hearing about data breaches involving millions of credit card and account numbers: hacking is lucrative, with criminals making more in a day than most of us make in a year. The bleeding will not stop anytime soon--and the more time you spend uninformed, the better your chances are of being targeted.

In the information security program, you will learn that whether you are a large business, small business or a family of four, there are certain fundamentals that you can follow to protect your data or the data you are entrusted with.

Jack Uldrich - "Ten Game Changing Technology Trends Transforming Tomorrow"



Jack Uldrich is an acclaimed futurist, speaker and best-selling author. He is frequently asked, "What will the future look like?" His response is, "predictably unpredictable."

So how can you prepare for the unpredictable? The answer will surprise you. The key is embracing paradox: learning to unlearn, thinking about the unthinkable, recognizing failure as a key component of success, and understanding that an awareness of one's ignorance is a key component of true wisdom.

Jack Uldrich paints vivid pictures of what the world may look like in just a few short years.

Jack Uldrich paints vivid pictures of what the world may look like in just a few short years. He provides an in-depth exploration of how the "Internet of Things," 'Big Data," social media, robotics, biotechnology, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, renewable energy and "collaborative consumption" will change everyday life for all of us in the very near future. And he follows through with upbeat, practical and actionable insights on future trends, emerging technologies, innovation, change management and leadership.
