Advancing Security for the Modern Business

Join us for breakfast on February 25th for an educational and engaging panel of security peers. 

Cybersecurity is an ever-changing discipline, rife with new challenges and enhanced expectations on an all-too-regular basis. Strategies and solutions that organizations have relied on for years can become antiquated at a moment’s notice, and managing risk within the modern business environment has never been more challenging or critical.

Join us for a panel of your peers from the cybersecurity community for an open forum discussion on lessons they’ve learned from their experience and methods they’ve applied to their programs.

Bring your questions!
