The cyber security threats faced by small ISPs are typically not of the same order as those of their larger, more illustrious, peers in the ISP community. In part that explains why small ISPs typically spend a lower share of revenue on network security and invest proportionately less in in-house security expertise. That doesn’t mean small ISPs aren’t vulnerable to cyber-attacks, however. In fact lack of investment in cyber security is often leaving small ISPs more, rather than less, vulnerable to attacks than their larger peers. This webinar will discuss the unique threat environment faced by small ISPs. It will also explore new, more affordable, approaches to investing in the protection that they need as well as explore how selling security as a service can drive revenue as well as better security for the ISP’s own network.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
