TOA Technologies' compliance and cloud security expert Alex Hamerstone will participate in this expert panel, addressing how service providers can achieve the right balance between simple communication and secure data, improve authentication processes and educate the user, as well as regulate customer protection. Other panel members include Jenny Menna, Acting Director US CERT, Department of Homeland Security; Louis Archbold, Senior Consultant Network and Information Security, Verizon and Martin Huddleston, DSTL Principal Cyber Solutions Architect, Defence Science and Technology Laboratory.
