When it comes to cybersecurity, we’re all in the same boat. We all sink or swim together. In 2016 there was an alarming amount of sinking going on. What can we as individuals in our private lives, and as people who work on creating the web, learn from what went wrong? What can we do to move closer to the dream of suck-free cybersecurity?

In this talk, Lauren will cover:

+ Common barriers to cybersecurity
+ Why cybersecurity fluency is for everyone, not just the tech savvy or security pros
+ The big stories of 2016 and what we can learn from them
+ How to work together to overcome the challenges we’ll face in 2017
+ Kickass resources for personal and professional suck-free cybersecurity
