Duo Security Summit: Can Security Enable Velocity?

Thursday, October 26 | 3:00pm Pacific Daylight Time

Expectations are on the rise for user-friendly security at enterprise organizations. What are the drawbacks of current models, and what do we need to think about as we move beyond the limitations and assumptions of a traditional security approach?

Security leaders from Bay Area companies such Box, ServiceNow, Synopsys, and Facebook, as well as Duo Security’s Dug Song (CEO) and Jon Oberheide (CTO), will lead a panel discussion on the lessons learned from building a progressive security culture. They'll be asking:

  • How can security enable velocity instead of putting it at risk?
  • What can we learn by listening to end users, instead of making administrators “check the box” as quickly as possible?
  • Is “patch all the things” a realistic philosophy, or do we need to plan further for inevitable legacy technology holdovers?

In addition to these questions, we'll ask for your honest feedback on what’s worked, what isn’t working, and where we go next.

Our aim is to enable high quality conversations with more of your peers, and a venue to share what matters most to the security community. Please join us!
