Today, CIOsynergy, a provider of thought leading events, announced Wombat Security’s participation at its upcoming event in Houston on October 16, 2014 at the ZaZa Houston hotel, in Texas.
Wombat Security Technologies provides information security awareness and training software to help organizations teach their employees secure behavior. Their SaaS cyber security education solution includes a platform of integrated broad assessments, and a library of simulated attacks, brief interactive training modules, and security awareness materials which can reduce malware infections and successful phishing attacks up to 90%.
“We are thrilled to have Wombat Security Technologies at CIOsynergy Houston. As phishing and cyber security education experts, their presence will provide event attendees with an additional layer of industry insights and thought leadership,” says Patrick Mason, Director of Communications and Marketing at CIOsynergy. “With almost 50% of companies still not implementing regular cyber security awareness and training for their employees, we welcome the opportunity to talk with CIOs about the importance of employee education in every organization’s defense-in-depth strategy,” said Joe Ferrara, President and CEO of Wombat Security Technologies.
CIOsynergy Houston is an exclusive opportunity for leading local CIO and IT executives to network and brainstorm daily hurdles in an unparalleled learning environment under the umbrella of keynote of the event John Sculley. Mr. Sculley is one of America’s best known business leaders, with one foot in the storied history of Apple technology and the other planted firmly in 21st century innovations that change the way the world does business. Few entrepreneurs have been as successful across so many fields as Sculley. His success stories include telecommunications, financial services, healthcare, high technology, internet Services, consumer marketing and IT supply chain.
John Sculley was Pepsi-Cola Co.’s youngest CEO leading the firm through its high growth years with hugely successful experience marketing innovations “Pepsi Generation” and “Pepsi Challenge” to become the largest selling consumer packaged goods in America. In 1982 Steve Jobs was building the first Macintosh computer and Steve believed the gutter of computing would be shaped by ease-of-use and he recruited John Sculley to Apple as CEO to teach Apple how to do big brand experience marketing. The Macintosh introductory TV commercial at the 1984 Super Bowl became the most famous advertising campaign of all time. Since leaving Apple, John and his Sculley Brothers Family Office has helped many high technology serial entrepreneurs build some of the most disruptively innovative technology enabled firms. These include MetroPCS, HotWire, NFO Research, Intralinks, and Credit Trade. Currently John is mentor and investor in mobility and Big Data analytics, consumerization of healthcare, data base marketing, IT supply chain, and emerging financial services.
