This week, over 40 security professionals attended the Security OPUS conference held at the W Hotel in downtown San Francisco. While the conference is only three years old, Richard Lindberg has created a great environment for CISOs and security professionals to learn. Some of the presenters were Michael Sutton, Stefano Zanero, Justin Troutman, Cedric Blancher, and Luis Miras. I was only able to attend two of the three conference days, but I had lots of fun and got to chat with a lot of smart people.
