On Day 1 of the conference, Trevor Goldman who is a Customer Solutions Engineer at Waterfall Security Solutions will be addressing the conflict between Engineering Change Control essential to safety and reliability, and "constant aggressive change" to "stay ahead of the bad guys." He will showcase how to simplify security models and programs to address unchanging cyber-security fundamentals. The presentation will also have a focus on deploying robust security measures able to address the most sophisticated security threats, no matter how they evolve over the years ahead.
