Build better defenses

The O’Reilly Security Conference brings together in-the-trenches security practitioners from organizations of every size, across a wide breadth of industries to share actionable insight in a supportive, hype-free environment. We'll cover interesting successes (and failures), provocative ideas, practical how-tos, proven best practices, and effective new approaches 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 to 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? There's no better place than Security.

Join us October 29–November 1 at the Hilton Midtown in New York, NY. Take a look at the schedule and start making your plans today. Need help convincing your manager? We've got you covered.
