Attendees at the fourth annual Cyber Investing Summit explored the financial opportunities, trends, challenges, and investment strategies available in the high growth cyber security sector. Participants included more than 200 of the leading cyber professionals, technology analysts, venture capitalists, fund managers, investment advisors, government experts, and more.

Shegerian spoke with panelists Stephen Fridakis, Chief Information Security Officer at HBO; Cody Oliver, Senior Manager of Investment Recovery for Verizon; and John Sowder, Information Technology Director for the Major League Baseball Players Association; about some of the best practices for brand protection and the role technology plays in that process.
