Securing @ Light Speed: No Compromises
The adoption of cloud technologies is causing a shift in the way companies plan, innovate, and communicate. Agile / Lean methodologies are driving a shift to a data driven, fail fast approach in every industry, and quality and velocity are the new cornerstones.

Security and Compliance professionals must ensure that risk management is not a limiting factor in this pursuit, and that they deliver tangible business value.
