    Securing the Human Layer Perry Carpenter, Chief Evangelist and Strategy Officer Recorded: May 4 2018 49 mins
    The intersection between technology and human security is a difficult challenge for any organization to tackle, and although detection technologies are advancing, criminals are rapidly evolving their techniques and tactics to even greater levels of sophistication.
