David Stelzl


In his informative session, information security expert David Stelzl described seven major technology trends he sees occurring in 2018 and into 2019. Stelzl spoke about the importance of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and thinking of the policies, procedures in place to adapt to employees’ different operating systems. Standards should be implemented with permissions and implications of data monitoring. Usage with personal versus work can become troublesome too.
