Upcoming Confirmed Presenters:   June 12th, ExtraHop Networks and July 10th, Tenable

May 8th “Continuous Measurement of Security Talent, Techniques & Technology”

Most of us base our security on assumptions. We assume our security tools, people and processes are working, vendor default configurations are right for us, if something was working before it’s still working now, and ongoing configuration changes are accurate. The sad truth is, we’ve been doing security wrong for so long that it feels right, but statistically, more is broken than working.

 Join us and Brian Contos, the CISO and VP of Technology Innovation at Verodin, to discuss how to make you a security hero where you can ensure that the dollars spent, plus the effort expended, results in value and increased security effectiveness.
