    Ephemeral Data and Other Emerging Technology
    In cybersecurity, staying on pace with current technology, issues, and approaches is a step behind. Practitioners must remain ahead of what is current, or else they will find themselves obsolete, commoditized, outside best practice, or a victim of a cyber incident or crisis. Take a look ahead with thought leadership and awareness around emerging, nascent, or predicted cyber technologies, approaches, threats, challenges, and applications such as transactional due diligence, ephemeral data, incident response, smart cities, alternative commerce and banking, identification, contracting, connected devices, artificial intelligence, risk transfer, data analytics, ethical and privacy concerns, IoT, industrial controls, and connectivity.
