Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce - Annual General Meeting

Join us on Wednesday March 22nd, 2017 at the Annual General Meeting of the Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce , the Membership will be asked to approve the Audited Financial Statements of the Corporation for the year ended December 31st, 2016 , update on the advocacy work and the year in review.

After the AGM business we will hear from our guest speaker Katherine Thompson, CATA Alliance. Katherine is recognized for her knowledge of the trends driving the global cyber security industry and her business minded approach to addressing the complexities of the growing threat of cyber attacks on Canadian industry, government and constituents. Katherine approaches risk from two perspectives - security risk and risk to revenue.

Katherine will present on:
  • Expanding the perspective of cyber security--a risk to security and a risk to revenue

  • The Real Hacker and who they target--dispel the illusion of the hacker as the hoodie wearing introvert and how hackers target the path of least of resistance--humans

  • Supply chain security--hacks like Target and Home Depot were perpetrated through the suppliers, the growing trend being driven by large corporations requiring suppliers to do prove security posture

  • Upcoming changes to PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection Electronic Documents Act) and how this will impact the ways in which Canadian businesses manage personal information, mandatory breach reporting and fines

Guest Speaker: Katherine Thompson, Senior Advisor, Cyber Security with MNP and Founder-Chair of the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATA) Cyber Council.
