For the April WTA session, we transition from our March event on “Identity as the New Perimeter” to a more human aspect. Join us in welcoming the Wisconsin Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) as they lead our panel into a deeper look at how we ensure that people are being safe with technology as it’s entrenched in our lives and everything we do.  While juggling our home devices, remote work and kids, what can we do to ensure ourselves, our loved ones and employers safe from cyber threats?  What should we be doing to educate our family on cyber security?
