Business and private organization leaders had the chance on April 18-19 to know the best technology and innovation offers in the market during the eMerge Americas 2016 event.
With several conference cycles on themes such as electronic government and the role of women in technology, eMerge Americas was a window for the attendees to become involved with the advances that will turn cities and citizens into participants of an innovative future.
During these two days, attendees joined start-up proposals up close and participate in workshops that will cover the most attractive options in Latin America, the US and Europe.
eMerge Americas had the participation of executives with ample experience in technology and business, such as Netflix co-founder Mark Randolph, Nasdaq’s CEO Bob Greifeld, the CEO for the Center for Democracy and Technology Nuala O’Connor; Trend Micro’s VP for Cybersecurity Strategy, Eduardo Cabrera, among others.
O’Connor talked about “Privacy, technology and innovation in the modern world”, centering her ideas in the current reality of the digital realm, its impact on societies and its relationships with governments.
On the other hand, the representative for Trend Micro attended the debate about “Cybersecurity: The imminent threat” , which will be centered in the analysis of how governments and private organizations can be safe from virtual attacks, in a world where privacy and data management are daily priorities for citizens.
