Andrew Horbury, Product Manager, Symantec
Trust is a fundamental currency on the web. In a virtual world, where you never know for sure who is controlling the website you are viewing or consuming the information you are sharing, meaningful interaction is impossible without high levels of trust. Increasingly, as cybercriminals have become more sophisticated in setting up spoof phishing sites to fool users into handing over personal details and passwords, sites need more than standard certificates to engender trust. Andrew will discuss different threats and how businesses and consumers can protect themselves in an ever changing online world.
