‘White Hat Hacker’ to Speak at NBWA’s 78th Annual Convention and Trade Show


ALEXANDRIA, VA – “White Hat Hacker” Jayson Street will take part in the general session program at the National Beer Wholesalers Association’s (NBWA) 78th Annual Convention and Trade Show to be held October 11 – 14, 2015, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.

News stories involving data breaches, identify theft and hacking of sensitive information have become commonplace. And they all center around one common theme – computers and cyber security.

As a professional hacker who works to protect people and businesses by identifying vulnerabilities and exposing risk, Street will reveal strategies for how to better protect personal information, computers and businesses.

Street is the author of the educational thriller Dissecting the Hack: The F0rb1dd3n Network and creator of http://dissectingthehack.com. Street works for Pwnie Express and is a senior partner at Krypton Security and CEO of Stratagem 1 Solutions.

The general session program also will feature Captain Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger, the commercial airline pilot responsible for the “Miracle on the Hudson,” and Candy Crowley, former chief political correspondent for CNN, along with a variety of beer industry leaders.

NBWA President & CEO Craig Purser said, “NBWA is excited to offer a convention program filled with informative and engaging speakers, 23 education seminars taught by the industry’s leading experts and a Trade Show filled with innovative products and services for beer distributors.”

With more than 275 exhibitors, this year’s two-day Trade Show will offer the opportunity to meet with a wide variety of vendors. Attendees can discover new resources to help improve business in a relaxed atmosphere, while enjoying a cold beer delivered by America’s beer distributors.
