Breakout Sessions

In addition to the executive-led keynotes, conference participants can choose from a number of breakout sessions designed to help attendees understand the cybersecurity challenges facing organizations and learn about the security solutions required to navigate the current (and future) threat landscape. 

Some of the sessions include the following, there are many more listed online: 

  • “The Road to Self-Healing SD-WAN: From Flexible Edges to Cloud Edge”: In this session, attendees can learn about the need for SD-WAN to enable self-healing networks from the Edge to the cloud.
