”How do hackers try to exploit that digital identity, and what does it mean when you lose that...

Whether its a Fortune 50, a Fortune 500 or its an organization of ten,” said Huffman.

Topics covered will include the mega-verse, web 3.0, digital identity, and blockchain technologies.

We’re talking about community sharing and we have a legal team of women that will be talking about protecting your digital identity legally,” said Laura Baker, Board President of CyberWyoming.
