Upcoming Meetings

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - 11:30am

Modern elastic cloud infrastructure is fundamentally breaking traditional security approaches. Public cloud has no natural perimeter and network segmentation leaving individual cloud servers exposed. In private cloud, malicious East-West traffic inside the network is a serious threat. As new workloads are added and retired dynamically, change control is difficult, and updating granular firewall rules and security policies becomes a risky, manual process. Join us and learn the 6 Critical Criteria to secure your public, private or hybrid cloud – on-demand, anywhere, at any scale.


Tuesday, June 20, 2017 - 8:00am

Due to the Cornerstones of Trust conference, there will be no meeting in June.

The Cornerstones of Trust conference helps security leaders and security practitioners evaluate trends and develop responses to the challenges like increasing cost pressures, rising compliance complexity, changing threat landscape and emerging technology disruptors.
