ATLANTA, GA — October 16, 2017 — October is National Cybersecurity Month.  TAG Mobility, the mobile tech focused group of Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), invites you to join their event in honor of this special tech focus, Cybersecurity in an Interconnected World, on Monday, October 23. Hosted by Womble Carlyle, this session will feature FinTech, HealthTech, and legal subject matter experts discussing the uses and risks of advanced technologies in combating the ever-growing threat of Cyber Crime.

Cyber-crime is always looking for a path of least resistance, away from secure hubs, and in today’s 24×7 high-tech, high-touch world there are an ever-increasing number of endpoints for hackers to exploit. As we explore the attack vectors, those that are well known and those that are not so obvious, it can be both scary and intimidating. So, what should we do?
