Cat has over 20 years in software and privacy experience, as well as having started her own business.. As both an engineer and a company founder, she is frequently called on for keynotes and panels as a Women in Tech or as an Entrepreneur.

The weakest link in the cybersecurity chain is still the employees. Social engineering and human error are responsible for the majority of data breaches -> 92% of malware is still downloaded to a company’s system via email sent to an employee. Though there are terrific software solutions that help to mitigate these risks, the ultimate solution is to train your employees. Help them better understand what information they are giving away and how it can be used against them.
In this entertaining and engaging talk, find out how your data is gathered and used in our evolving online world. Cat helps individuals understand how their behaviours online affects both the company’s data security and their reputation. Leave with tangible actions you can take to improve privacy and safety of your online accounts. Keep hackers at bay, secure your private accounts, and take ownership of your most valuable asset, your data.
Privacy Regulations are often considered a nuisance, but staying compliant ensures that your company is better protected against breaches and that your individual privacy is secured. Cat will explain the basics behind today's regulations and what you need to know to avoid fines, protect users, and continue to innovate while putting privacy first.
