Bruce Schneier and Chris Riley will be our special guests on successive days, as we talk about the issues that are most important to the Internet’s infrastructure. This will be a chance to talk with these important thought leaders in a small setting, to receive and provide insights on the future of the Internet.

Learn from Bruce on what the service provider community needs to know to keep it, and its users safe, and the Internet growing.
