Is the future for secure computer systems open source?
Will our industry end up completely open source? How are tech companies already embracing open source as an ethos and practically? Will it make our systems safer and more secure? Is there an alternate future?
Hosted by prominent cybersecurity journalist and author, Geoff White, this unique in-person event brings together the leading minds in open source, technology, digital innovation, and research to share where they predict the future of cybersecurity and secure system design is heading.
This is a must-attend event for software and hardware engineers, open source, cybersecurity, and tech industry professionals.
We’re also proud, and very excited, to welcome one of the world’s most prominent pioneers of open source technology, Bruce Perens, as our keynote speaker.
Bruce is one of the founders of the open source movement in software and was the person to announce “open source” to the world. From Pixar to HP and the UN, Bruce has worked at the intersections of open source, engineering, software, design, and law for more than four decades.
The event includes a panel discussion – Does open sourcing code make for less vulnerable code? – with audience Q&A. Following the presentations and panel, attendees are welcomed to join the presenters for food, drinks, and further discussion.
