Why CONSULT 2018

Why CONSULT 2018 Image
Many critical issues affecting security consultants and design engineers don’t get enough discussion. Manufacturers' dedicated events focus mainly on increasing understanding of their own products, and consultants can only allocate so much time to attend non-revenue producing events. This multi-manufacturer event is more issue-focused than product-focused. An in-depth discussion of critical issues facing security consultants and engineers is the intent.

Symposium Content
