Expert Panel: Philadelphia Talks Security for Networks, Data and Information

Among the notable panel of speakers, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from subject matter experts such as John Masserini (Chief Information Security Officer, Miami International Holdings), Scott Laliberte (Managing Director, Protiviti) and Jeffrey Gardosh (Chief Information Security Officer, City of Philadelphia)
