Description of the event

A strong understanding of emerging cybersecurity paradigms, threats, and vulnerabilities is the foundation for developing a secure, next-generation wired and mobile infrastructure to support effective cloud-based application development.

While there are many events that focus on the technical details of various silos, this event is unique in that it brings together an overview to ensure participants’ strategies and operations are in line with emerging trends in all of these interconnected areas. Knowing how both cybersecurity and infrastructure are evolving enables practitioners, strategists, and architects to design effective infrastructure to support next-generation application development, including DevOps and Agile.
