Making Sense Of The Local Landscape (#smx #32D)
If the changes going on in local search are giving you a headache, you're not alone. Google Places is still transitioning to Google+ Local, and there are several types of local listings being created in the process. Google Maps and Apple Maps are both vying for consumer attention on mobile devices. Local businesses know they need citations and reviews, and a trusted company website is a must for traditional search visibility. In this session, our expert panelists will guide local businesses (and marketers that serve them) with strategies and tactics that work in this often confusing local landscape.

Q&A Coordinator: Purna Virji, Senior Marketing Manager, Stroll

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
