Cybersecurity Symposium

To understand what is happening in cybersecurity today, all you need to do is look to the latest headlines. Cyber-attacks have intensified in frequency, sophistication, and severity. Corporations, networks, and individuals are under constant attack by cyber-threats globally. Internet services and communications have been impeded by attackers, causing disruption and uncertainty for millions of users. It is not just the big companies who are being attacked—small and medium size companies may be seen as easier targets or stepping stones in attacking larger networks. Cable operators play an important role in maintaining very large networks that are used globally by organizations, companies, and consumers. Threats are always present and countermeasures are being offered to ensure the security of communications moving across our networks.

The Cybersecurity pre-conference symposium will provide an unparalleled discussion on these threats and how they pertain to the cable networks. Learn how to protect and defend these networks from attacks and hear a number of cable operator case studies that will speak to how cable operators are securing their networks.

The pre-conference symposium is presented in partnership with CableLabs®.
