The track topics have been expanded for 2021 to include such emerging trends as Zero Trust principles, remote workforce security, supply chain security and artificial intelligence, in addition to popular annual topics like cloud security, professional & career development, DevSecOps and healthcare security. These sessions will aid security leaders by arming them with the latest knowledge, tools and expertise to protect their organizations.
