Cybersecurity & The Next Generation: 10 Steps to Privacy, Safety, and Citizenship
For parents, educators, policy makers, and marketers in the digital age, it’s increasingly difficult and stressful to understand the Internet from a young person’s perspective. Not only are children more comfortable with technology than adults, but they’re also getting better at hiding behind it. Privacy and security policies can’t keep up with the speed of new technology, leaving people of all ages vulnerable to threats. And as a result, kids are diving into all sorts of dangerous situations online and adults aren’t equipped to save them from drowning.
In this keynote, based on her upcoming book Outsmarting Your Kids Online: A Safety Handbook for Overwhelmed Parents (May 2016), tech expert Amber MacArthur provides 10 steps to better privacy, safety, and citizenship. Covering concerns around social media networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and so forth), online video, mobile applications, screen time, targeted attacks, and even the security hazards of tomorrow, this keynote is an ideal way for parents, educators, policy makers, marketers, and more to learn how the next generation is shaping the Internet.

After starting her career at two successful start-ups during the dot-com boom in San Francisco in the late 1990s, writing a bestselling book about digital marketing, working as a technology expert at the world’s leading media outlets, and growing her social empire to more than two million people around the globe, there is no better person to tackle the future of this amplified connectivity. MacArthur’s energetic and visually rich presentation will help your group prepare for this evolution.
Relentless Adaptation: How Great Companies Are Really Innovating to Win
We obsess over innovation. But innovation is overrated. If you look at the smart companies that are prized for “innovation,” you see that they are actually masters of “adaptation”—of knowing when to adjust, when to speed up, and when to capitalize. It’s not about being first; it’s about being flexible. In this thrilling new talk, Amber Mac looks to leading organizations, many of which she covers for Fast Company, to explore the practice of relentless adaptation. Is your company taking advantage of disruptive new technologies, or simply being disrupted by them? From the C-Suite to marketing to customer service and beyond, a newly adaptive corporate culture, defined by digital technology and bold leadership, is fundamentally changing business. And Amber Mac has had her ear to this fertile new ground for years. Fusing new concepts like crowdsourcing and gameification to a timeless strategic framework, this big picture talk sheds light on how to adapt, and how to win, in our fast-forward economy.
