About Ed TALKS

For two decades, I’ve been fortunate to have crossed paths with respected industry luminaries and practitioners. On a regular basis, I invite them to discuss practical approaches to securing the software ecosystem based on today’s realities: complex tech stacks, evolving threats, motivated attackers, mounting regulations, and unsettling skill gaps.

Come join us. You may laugh, cry, reflect, or learn – just like your relationship with security. Either way, Ed TALKS will be: engaging, realistic, and diverse.
