HITEC focuses on security issues

Keynote speakers at HITEC 2014 in Los Angeles in June have been announced. This year, HITEC 2014 will tackle a collaborative economy, risk assessment, and corporate security in keynote sessions.

Douglas Merrill, former Google CIO will teach the audience how to analyse security budgets to identify unmanaged risks that need attention and wasted spending that can be cut. He gives a broad, sweeping view of how to keep a company secure and stable, and hones in on specific concerns. He will explore how to design security that promotes innovation and productivity rather than obstacles and frustration.

Rachel Botsman, social innovator and author, named by Time as one of the 10 ideas that will change the world, will explain how the rapidly growing collaborative economy is transforming production, finance, education and consumption. She focuses on the macro changes in consumer behaviours, taking us into a world where we value access over ownership, peer trust over institutional trust and a completely new relationship between buyers and sellers.
