Security Front and Center at Akamai Edge 2013

At this year's Akamai Edge Conference, taking place Oct. 7-11 in Washington DC, security will be a central part of the agenda.

One of the three tracks this year is a Web Security Symposium, tailored to meet the needs of security professionals looking to protect their organization from unwanted network or application layer attacks, while improving the exchange of information between employees, customers and business partners on any device, anywhere. Topics include:

  • Developing strategies to secure your data, sites and applications
  • Security without compromising performance
  • Web security customer panel discussions
  • Managing enterprise global security in a hybrid cloud environment
  • Mobile security insights and best practices

Security heavyweights are featured prominently on the keynote roster.

There will be the Financial Services Roundtable Lunch on Security Information Sharing: Lessons Learned from Financial Services, and Former NSA Senior Counsel Joel Brenner will share his insider perspectives on the implications of our global reliance on the inter-connected and Internet-dependent way of life and how to address "the new faces of espionage and warfare on the digital battleground."

There will also be a keynote discussion with Bruce Schneier, founder and CTO of BT Managed Security Solutions, and Akamai CSO Andy Ellis will lead a panel discussion on the lessons of Operation Abibal.
