The future, built with AI. The future, built on Blockchain.

What will it really look like?

The opening keynote speaker for the 2018 SecureWorld Bay Area cybersecurity conference on August 21 will tackle that very topic.

Former Intel Chief Evangelist and Futurist Steve Brown will kick things off with, "Going Digital: Building Your Strategic Roadmap for the Next Wave of Digital Transformation."

Watch our interview with Steve Brown here:

“Organizations have been through web, mobile, cloud, all those things, and we’re now about to hit a new wave of technologies that come together and fundamentally change the relationship between customers, business processes, the way people work,” says Brown, who goes by @baldfuturist.

“We’re going to have teams that are made up of humans and non-humans together. Just re-thinking how you get eyes on your business, make smarter decisions and how you keep all of that secure as you increasingly digitize the business is going to be a challenge for everybody. What I do in my keynote is help you think through what are the strategic questions I need to ask and answer in this dramatically changing business landscape?”
