August Breakfast (8/13) – Data Opportunities

Data collection and proliferation from machines, social media, smartphones and other sensors open the doors to huge new opportunities for the franchised organization, along with equally significant risks. What can you use, and what can you do with it? How can “big data” improve your customer relationships and transform your business?

Meanwhile, information security risks for the franchised enterprise have skyrocketed in recent years. The working assumption of most sophisticated organizations is that all systems are vulnerable and most are probably infected. As the franchised enterprise moves toward cloud computing and “Software-as-a-Service” (SaaS), an equally well-organized black market complements that offering with “Fraud-as-a-Service” (FaaS). Many of the best responses to such malware and fraud will again draw on “big data.”

Join us for our August 13 breakfast meeting when Jason Adler with Cellairis and Jon Neiditz with Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton speak on what’s happening on the cutting edge of data collection and how the risks may be allocated and shifted by franchisors and franchisees.
