Cyber defense, cyber attack, cyber warfare – the terms are prevalent and yet, what do they really mean to you and your organization? Little is understood about this unique and ubiquitous threat to our national and personal security. Yet defending the homeland means more than protecting our airports, railheads, nuclear plants and government buildings. Power grids, banking data, telecommunications and personal identity records are all at risk.

The US Cyber Command has budgeted billions of dollars this year for cyber defense systems - how much is enough to protect your organization? If your business depends even in part on computers, you are vulnerable to a cyber attack from hackers, criminal elements, even state-sponsored terrorists.

Estonia, the CIA and Google have one thing in common – they were breached by hackers. The cost in restoring lost data is significant, but the cost of restoring lost confidence is immeasurable. Is your organization prepared to thwart a cyber attack?

Even as individuals, we are not immune. For instance, PayPal’s response to Wikileaks’ unauthorized release of classified documents in Sweden prompted hackers to disable PayPal temporarily preventing online purchases.

Combining his vast military experience with unprecedented access to state of the art IT security expertise, Gen. Peter Pace explains this invisible threat and what nations, businesses and individuals can do to protect themselves.

Daniel Pink (Exclusively WSB)

“A-B-C,” Alec Baldwin tells a group of salesmen in the classic movie Glengarry Glen Ross. “A-B-C. A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing. Always be closing, always be closing.” But best-selling author Daniel Pink says this steamroller approach has become a relic, because sales has changed more in the last 10 years than it did in the previous 100. Today, when buyers have just as much information as sellers—along with ample choices and the means to talk back—the rules have changed.

In his entertaining and provocative presentation, Pink—author of To Sell Is Human and one of the top business thinkers in the world—will draw on cutting-edge social science and best practices from organizations around the world to reveal the new A, B, Cs of selling. A-Attunement (taking another perspective). B-Buoyancy (staying afloat in an ocean of rejection). C-Clarity (identifying hidden problems and making sense of murky situations).

Pink will show you:

  • Why caveat emptor (buyer beware) is giving way to caveat venditor (seller beware); 
  • Five ways to frame messages to increase clarity and lead to action;
  • Why problem  finding has become more important than problem solving;
  • Why questioning your abilities before a sales call is more effective than pumping yourself up;
  • Why the most effective salespeople are not extroverts; 
  • Two principles that can move your sales from transactions to transcendence.
