In today’s technology-dependent world, the importance of Cyber Security continues to come to the forefront. Cyber attacks are a threat at all levels, from individuals, to government agencies, to businesses of all sizes and industries. At NC TECH’s 2019 State of Technology Conference, we will explore Cyber Security and how it impacts all facets of our lives, and look to future trends and how we can prepare ourselves.

More than 600 security, IT and business leaders from across sectors and functional roles will gather May 10 at our flagship tech conference for a day of engaging keynotes, interactive panel discussions, a fast paced pitch competition from tech startups and an exhibit showcase. A pre-conference reception will be held the evening prior, on May 9.
