The virtual session on October 28 features visionary speaker Marcio Avillez, SVP of Business Development, CUJO AI, followed by an interactive discussion addressing industry efforts to mitigate potential risks to consumers’ personal data, as well as business opportunities emerging in this area.

"Research has shown time and again how many people are concerned about the integrity of their personal data. We are facing a ripe opportunity for network service providers to address this issue and reliably mitigate threats to personal data on a network level. The technology to do this on a massive scale is already there," said Marcio Avillez, SVP of Business Development, CUJO AI.

Featured executive speakers for the interactive panel:

  • David Henry, Senior Vice President of Connected Home Products and Services, NETGEAR
  • Sharon Mirsky, Co-founder & COO, Firedome
  • Antero Norkio, Vice President, Solution Management - Consumer Security Business Unit, F-Secure

“The nearly 80% of consumers who worry about a privacy breach in their home correlates well with our recent survey where the same consumers are saying that device manufacturers aren’t doing enough to protect them,” said Antero Norkio, VP of Solution Management for Consumer Security, F-Secure. “Our cloud-native approach to securing home gateways allows us the flexibility to work with best-in-class partners to secure families at home and on-the-move, with an improved quality of consumer experience. And providers like Windstream tell us that the holistic solutions we develop together give their customers peace of mind and control."
