Emerging Technology 2020 Conference (Canceled)

April 21 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm EDT

GWDC Member - $105, Other ISACA Member $135, Non-ISACA Member: $150


The ISACA GWDC is proud to host our annual Emerging Technology 2020 conference on April 21st in Rosslyn, Va. Technological advances such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, 3D printing, blockchain and 5G will have a significant impact to our daily lives. Organizations and digital born companies want a competitive edge and are implementing these technologies while leaving the risk of their implementations on audit and security professionals. We need to consider and understand their implications to harness their capabilities to proactively address risks. The ISACA GWDC Emerging Technology 2020 conference features local thought leaders and demonstrations on current and emerging topics related to addressing the risk and impact in new technology.

Attendees of ISACA GWDC Emerging Technology 2020 Conference will learn from, and engage with, dynamic speakers about the potential, status and threats surrounding these technologies.

Aaron will share strategies to help each of us not only adapt to the rapid pace of change, but to thrive in it.
