Trends in Enterprise Security 

UPDATE as of  Oct.   24th, 2020: TechForum's Security Forum conference on April 2nd has been postponed (exact date TBA) due to concerns about COVID-19. We will be doing an in-person event in NYC when New York State allows meetings of our size to take place, and companies located here allow their employees to attend live events. Our tentative date will be late March- early April of 2021. Our date will be dependent on NYS guidelines for indoor gatherings of 100 persons or more, and format will be based on recommended NYC guidelines. 

In the meantime, please check out our TechForum Webchat series aimed at addressing enterprise security issues.

You can also access our Remote Sessions from our Sponsors. 
Questions? Contact us through our Contact Form and we'll get right back to you.

2020-2021 date TBA
