Princeton, N.J. August 1st 2018 – Information Security Media Group, the leading media provider serving the information security community, held the first in its new series of CyberEdTalks events July 27-28 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The new CyberEdTalks brand builds off the success of ISMG’s Global Summit Series, which offers annual events around the world.
The inaugural CyberEdTalks event in Sao Paulo, which ISMG prepared in partnership with the Cyber Security Summit Brazil, provided unprecedented education to the South American market. Through the use of translators, content was delivered predominantly in Portuguese.

Industry influencers from around the world gathered to share important insights. Kicking things off was Guido Amin Naves, a four-star general who is official general of Brazil’s Cyber Command.
Other speakers included: Cel. Marcelo Paiva Fontenele of the Brazilian Army; David Brassanini, chief operations and legal attache at the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation; Prashant Pillai, director of the Cyber Research Institute at the University of Wolverhampton in England; Bruno Rodrigues, who is conducting research at the University of Zurich, and many others.
“Just two years ago, we launched the Cyber Security Summit in Brazil because of my passion to bring premium content to this market,” said Narezzi, who now serves as chair of CyberEdTalks Brazil. “We look forward to exponential growth by leveraging ISMG’s global publications such as www.databreachtoday.com, www.bankinfosecurity.com, www.inforisktoday.com and dozens of other websites.”
The CyberEdTalks series will expand to new markets in the year ahead, including Germany, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South Africa and Chile. These important events will provide much-needed education on topics, including leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning for security, thwarting nation-state attacks, mitigating the insider threat among many more pressing matters.
Tom Field, ISMG’s senior vice president of editorial, notes: “From the quality of the speakers and topics to the engagement of the audience, as well as the smooth relationship with our partner in the region, the Brazilian event was a success. I look forward to bringing similar experiences to under-served markets elsewhere in the world.”
ISMG’s Global Summit series will continue this year with events in New York, Washington, Toronto, London and Mumbai. In addition to summits on fraud and data security, events also will address key security issues in healthcare as well as legal and compliance topics. Learn more: https://events.ismg.io/
