  • Paul Raines, chief information security officer, UN Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)
  • Adam Stubblefield, Senior Security Analyst, Independent Security Evaluators
  • “Today, security executives spend more time putting out fires than they do planning for the future, which means that they don’t have time to navigate large events to learn about new technologies or about building risk management discipline,” said Laura Koetzle, vice president of and research director of security research at Forrester Research. “We designed the Security Forum so that attendees can easily engage in intimate discussions with leaders in industry and research, with vendors, and with their global peers.”
