Book for attendees
Blind Spots: Why Good People Make Bad Choices
Attendees will receive a copy of the book Blind Spots: Why Good People Make Bad Choices by Kevin McCarthy, keynote speaker for the conference. A respected business leader, faithful husband and loving father suddenly finds himself in a federal prison for a crime he didn’t knowingly commit. As he struggles to understand the complexity of his bad decisions, an ever-widening web of conspiracy and corruption is revealed – a conspiracy of the mind. Blind spots are those unconscious biases, implicit associations, memory traps and thinking errors that affect our behavior and decision-making abilities. We all have them even though we think we don’t.
Jeffrey Sturman
ChoiceSenior Vice President & CIO, Memorial Healthcare System, and
Oscar Perez

Healthcare providers are being heavily impacted by digital transformation, and the effects are rippling throughout the security and audit professionals in the industry. Don't miss this presentation.
Jody Paterson
Executive Chairman, ERP Maestro
Jody will discuss the expansion of insider threat risks caused by digital transformation. Recent reports have shown that most security breaches are due to internal threats and many others go undetected until it’s too late. Moreover, with pressures to rapidly implement new technologies and deliver innovation projects, security may take a back seat. You’ll learn the main drivers of insider access risks in the era of digital transformation, how to train and empower employees to address them, and tools that can aid in detection of potential insider access risks.
