New Dark Reading Conference Will Focus on Defense

The INsecurity Conference, Nov. 29-30 at the Gaylord National Harbor in Maryland is all about helping infosecurity pros mitigate threats -- from hot topics to basic hygiene.

The Dark Reading editorial staff loves writing about cybersecurity, but we don't want to write about you. Our goal is to provide readers the news that will help them stay out of the news.

To that end, our very first live event - the INsecurity conference, Nov. 29-30 at the Gaylord National Harbor in Maryland - will focus not on threats, but on defense. 

By defense we don't just mean new whiz-bang, blinky-light tools. We mean tricks for improving security hygiene and strategies for combating the attacker techniques that have thus far defied technological solutions. Some of our speakers are practicing chief information security officers, ready to share insights about what has worked (and not worked) for them.    

Here are just a handful of the sessions, roundtables, and expert-led guided discussions that will be part of the INsecurity lineup:
