We all know that risk lives in the gaps — the spaces between teams, technologies, processes and workflows. The gaps are where information falls through the cracks, emerging issues go unnoticed and bad actors gain entry.

We covered a lot of ground in 70+ sessions over two days. Whether or not you attended, make sure to review the information-rich highlights in our quick recap blogs from Day 1 and Day 2 of the event.
