This Week’s Big News: The Ivanti Security Summit!
Yes, it was last week’s Big News, too, but we think it’s that important. The Ivanti Security Summit, Powered by the Chertoff Group, takes place this Wednesday, Nov. 8, in Seattle. The event theme is Cybersecurity for Today’s Extreme Threats. The blog post Secure in Seattle: Why You Need to Attend the Ivanti Security Summit includes a summary of speakers and sessions.
The Chertoff Group is a leading global advisory firm with a focus on security and technology. Principals and expert partners of the firm will join Ivanti CEO Steve Daly, CISO Phil Richards, Manager of Product Marketing Amber Boehm, and Manager of Product Management Chris Goettl for a day of actionable content that will help accelerate your organization’s journey to better cybersecurity, today and tomorrow.
You and your colleagues can attend the Summit with Ivanti’s compliments. (You’re responsible for your travel and accommodations.) Click here for more information, or to register. We look forward to welcoming you to this must-attend event.
