NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 4, 2017) - White Ops, the leading provider of human verification services for the digital advertising market, announced today that White Ops President and COO Eddie Schwartz will be participating in a panel, "Inside the Mind of the Hacker" at CES 2017 CyberSecurity Forum. The presentation is scheduled to take place on January 5, 2017 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.

Each day, we see a plethora of new products hit the market that are connected to the Internet -- mobile devices, over-the-top (OTT) content, augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR), wearables, connected cars, and the list goes on -- all of which create new levels of security, privacy and fraud concerns for both individuals and organizations. Throughout this conference, speakers and attendees will discuss and plan for ways in which to create the best products to defend against these security concerns. At this year's CES CyberSecurity Forum, Eddie Schwartz and a team of security expert panelists will tackle how to think like a hacker, and the ways to better plan for and protect against fraud and data breaches.
