Christopher Hopkins Presents Keynote Cybersecurity Presentation at Florida Dispute Resolution Conference

Data Breach

Special thanks to the Florida Dispute Resolution Center and the 1,000+ attendees at this year’s ADR: Options and Opportunities (27th annual) Conference.

My keynote address covered various forms of cybersecurity risks (not just for mediators) including phishing, spearfishing, WiFi Pineapple man in the middle attacks, DDOS attacks, physical attacks, and other issues involving data breach and hacking.
