Annual General Meeting

Featured Presentation Topic:

Cybersecurity: Where Do We Go From Here?

Speaker: Gary Perkins, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for the Province of British Columbia.

Recent cyber-attacks on retail, IT, healthcare, financial institutions, and government remind us that no-one is immune. Today’s assaults are more sophisticated, targeted, and persistent, contributing to a threat landscape that is more complex than ever. With finite resources, organizations must be thoughtful in mitigating harmful effects that include reputational damage, business disruption, and/or financial loss.


Despite growing awareness of the problem many organizations that have failed to keep pace are left behind and struggle to identify what to do, how to do it, where to start, and who to trust.  Security professionals are faced with the impossible task of keeping current to mitigate the latest threats while simultaneously mitigating risks to legacy infrastructure.


More than ever, it is imperative that cybersecurity professionals collaborate against common adversaries.  They need to invest not only in themselves, but each other, and build the next generation of cybersecurity talent.  According to a recent study by ISACA, there will be a global shortage of 2 million security professionals by 2019.  In Canada, the deficit is projected to be over 60,000. The only way we’ll be successful is through working together.
