Cybersecurity continues to be top of mind for business leaders, technologists, and consumers. From the latest catastrophic data breach to crippling Internet attacks and cyber warfare, no data or network seems safe. Now, Boston-area cybersecurity companies are working to advance the state of the art in security automation, behavioral analytics, anti-phishing systems, and other arenas. At the same time, venture investment is flowing into hot sectors like cryptocurrencies, blockchain and identity management, and deception tech.

What new technologies and cyber risks are coming down the pike for organizations of all sizes? And, as investment in security tech seems to be peaking again, what are the greatest opportunities and pitfalls for startups and venture capitalists? Xconomy’s second annual cybersecurity conference in Boston will convene business and technology leaders to discuss these topics, and much more.
