Presentation Title: Lessons Learned from Avid Life Media (Ashley Madison)

Presentation Description: The Avid Life Media hack is a striking example of everything that can go wrong when a company is completely breached followed by a total disclosure of the stolen information. This attack resulted in an estimated $200 million in costs, firing of the CEO, and countless lives ruined. This presentation will review the data exposed and what can be learned to prevent this from happening to your organization.
