Duo's Second Wind Breakfast at Black Hat

Thursday, July 27 | 8:00am Pacific Daylight Time

Grab breakfast and get your second wind for the week with Duo Security in Las Vegas during the Black Hat conference on Thursday the 27th.

This open-house-style breakfast event focuses on what we’re learning about security, what assumptions we’ve made that were wrong, and what’s about to change. For example:

  • The perimeter’s not dead, but we’re not really sure where it is anymore. What’s working better today: a Google-style BeyondCorp model? What IS the perimeter? Is it identity? Multiple networks? All of the above?
  • For some reason, it seems that decades of telling organizations to patch doesn’t actually result in many of them being able to keep up. Can we figure out why, or just blame harder and hope it gets better?
  • Every user today is also a consumer. Their expectations for user-friendly security are rising, and we may start seeing pushback in the enterprise as a result. How are we going to adapt to their demands, rather than relying on policies and mandates from the top?

Wendy Nather, Duo's Principal Security Strategist, will moderate this discussion with two long-time security practitioners, Adrian Sanabria and Alex Hutton.

We look forward to seeing you there!
