Light Point Security CEO to Moderate CyberMaryland 2013 Panel on Cybersecurity Innovation and Trends

CyberMaryland 2013 Light Point Security Panel

We’re looking forward to the CyberMaryland 2013 Conference being held Oct 8 – 9 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD. CyberMaryland is a unique conference spanning two days during Cybersecurity Awareness Month that will address the biggest challenges facing America, including future innovation to meet the security challenges facing our country; collaboration across industry, government and educational institutions; and the development of a generation of cyber-warriors.

Not only will it be an opportunity for us to catch up with old friends, but our CEO, Beau Adkins, will be moderating an excellent panel on cybersecurity innovation and future trends. The idea for the panel stemmed from the fact that we wanted to get some of the best minds in security together to have a candid discussion on the current issues facing the industry and how they see innovation and trends evolving over time to combat the threat.

Panel Title

Each panelist will take a deep dive into today’s threat landscape for their industry and share the tactics they employ to protect against them. They will discuss the current trends and innovations occurring within the industry and share their predictions of what’s to come in the next few years.
