ENTERPRISE SECURITY: executive dinner hosted by DigiCert  

Transforming Enterprise Security in 2024: Speed, Efficiency, and Crypto-Agility

20th of February 2024 | 6.30 pm - 9.30 pm
Warwick Melrose Hotel, Dallas  

In 2024, enterprises face a pivotal moment of change, particularly for those yet to transition their legacy public key infrastructure (PKI). Modern PKI and crypto agility have never been more crucial in the era of Cloud computing. Transport Layer Security (TLS) usage is surging, extending beyond public certificates to encompass private TLS certificates that facilitate mutual TLS throughout the Cloud service mesh. A centralized certificate management platform is essential for both public/private certificates and foundational for the control required in today's service architectures. 

Join this lively roundtable discussion with Anthony Ricci, Senior Director of Product Management, and Avesta Hojjati, DigiCert VP of Engineering, to discover how modernizing digital trust infrastructures can become a key driver for cost reductions, strengthened security posture, and streamlined certificate management.
