Session Title: The Best Kept Secrets in Boston Cybersecurity

Come along to enjoy breakfast and discuss one of the hottest subjects in the tech industry. 

Nestled in the heart of Assembly Row, Avecto is Boston’s best kept cyber security secret. Celebrating its 10-year anniversary, Avecto was founded by UK entrepreneurs Mark Austin and Paul Kenyon, who shared a vision of stopping cyber attacks – without stopping employee productivity. Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Avanessian, will explain how Avecto has achieved global success, now protecting more than 8 million endpoints at some of the world's largest brands from cyber attack. 

Andrew has been a fundamental part of Avecto since its inception. He'll share why Avecto selected Boston as their U.S. headquarters and the reasons why investors have contributed over $1.7 billion to creating a cyber security hub in Boston.

Removing access to local admin rights is one of the best things you can do to improve security. Andrew will speak to the hidden dangers in your organization caused by the overuse of admin rights, which open the door to outside hackers and insider abuse. Using real-world examples, you'll learn about the dangers of unchecked privileges and that the solution is easier than you think.
