(WDEF) New advances in technology change the way we live... But those same advances change the way criminals get your private information. That's why InfoSystems held this Technology Showcase for businesses in the Chattanooga area.
Scott Davis is Director of Sales for InfoSystems. He said, "It's an opportunity for us to gather East Tennessee businesses, small business medium, our customers and share technology trends with them."
IT companies like InfoSystems and IBM work to keep ahead of the curve when it comes to corporate security, but that's an ever-changing battle. Davis added, "Just the nature of the attacks and the complexity of them. The fact that you're getting foreign governments that are starting to sponsor these. Attacking our companies so they can hinder their competitiveness."
Its not just corporate espionage. The experts warn everyday people to be careful with their personal information, especially on smart phones and tablets.
Clay Hales is the President of InfoSystems. He said, "But its also a big deal for the people at home. You hear stories about people doing identity theft because somebody posted something on Facebook or crazy stuff like that."
The medical community is especially interested in solving the security puzzle. Soon all medical records will be digital... And possible targets for hackers.
Kevin McDonald is the President of Noloki Healthcare IT and Compliance. McDonald said, "As consumers I think, do understand that we're doing the best we can in the community to keep your records private, there are always people trying to get to them and that's one of the reasons we're here as a community. We are really trying to work to keep your records private."
