Build better defenses: The O'Reilly Security Conference

The O'Reilly Security Conference brings together in-the-trenches security practitioners from organizations of every size and across a wide breadth of industries to share actionable insight in a supportive, hype-free environment. Leading defensive practitioners will share interesting successes (and failures), provocative ideas, practical how-tos, and proven best practices that can benefit all defenders.

Looking for new ways to fend off a targeted attack or eject persistent intruders from your environment or recover quickly and effectively from a breach? Want to integrate new technology into your environment, securely and successfully? Need figure out how to keep your access controls (to data, network, or cloud) effective at scale—without losing your mind? Want to help your management team and BOD understand how your work is crucial to the bottom line? All of the above? Then make plans to join us October 29–November 1 at the Hilton Midtown in New York for the O'Reilly Security Conference.
