Whether they’re trying to keep within their budgets, or keep up of the ever-changing network technologies and daily emerging threats, many professionals are either overwhelmed or in denial that attack could happen to them. The truth is many professionals are not up to date on all the emerging threats. We understand that finding the solutions to help combat these problems can be even more overwhelming than the threats themselves, as there are so many security products and services out there.

Race with the Machines. In this talk Brynjolfsson discusses the fear many have in regards to machines and technology. As the machines take more jobs, many think it’s the end of growth, that soon our jobs will be obsolete.
