How do organizations cope with the growing demand for security professionals, especially in an age of ever-expanding attack surface and more frequent and sophisticated cyber attacks? Watch this live video panel of experts as they discuss the current trends shaping the cybersecurity industry, the need for diversity and inclusion, and strategies enterprises can employ to stay ahead of the game.
