“A good conference is like a robust dinner party” – Frehsfields CISO, Mark Walmsley, on getting the best value from conferences

As a security decision maker, you might be suffering from conference fatigue. You know, that all too familiar din as you attempt to traverse the never-ending conference floor only to be stalled in your tracks by yet another vendor touting the latest “silver bullet” for EVERY cyber vulnerability.

Mark Walmsley, CISO of global law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, shares his perspectives on our podcast about the importance of getting maximum return from your time at conferences and how to do so.
