CEBIT Roadshow Florida

Perspectives on Transformation in Digitalization

The recent Equifax data breach is putting millions of consumers on edge. A United States Office of Personnel Management hack resulted in records of 18 million U.S. citizens being compromised. Back in 2015, a single attack on insurer Anthem left almost 80 million customers and employees exposed.

Cybersecurity is just one of many IT issues that drive business threats and business opportunities in equal measure. IoT, AR, VR and AI also make headlines – both in media and in corporate board rooms across the globe. 

As a technology company, can you afford to miss out on insights from subject matter experts in all things digital? In a world where products, service, and the way you connect with your customers changes at break-neck speed, how do you stay competitive?

The German American Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with Enterprise Florida, the Florida High Tech Corridor and CEBIT, is pleased to invite you to this informative business seminar to review current digitization trends relevant to your business, and to learn about opportunities to gain international business exposure in Europe’s premier Digital Innovation Festival.
