Boston, MA - SOURCE Boston 2011 brings security experts and business professionals together in an intimate and personal environment to discuss the security industry’s most important issues while highlighting the need to focus on bridging the gap between business and technology in the computer security industry.
SOURCE Boston brings the technical excellence and expertise found at top hacker conferences to an intimate environment where attendees can ask questions, participate in discussions, and interact with other delegates and speakers, as well as gain insight into computer security’s most important issues, technologies, and business trends.
Attendees range from leading security researchers, advanced IT professionals, senior and top-level executives, company chief officers, faculty and students from colleges and universities, members of management and business communities who are looking to connect with security and technology experts. Conference participants can expect to leave well-informed on industry issues from both technical and business perspectives.
SOURCE is passionate about assisting and promoting the Boston security startup scene, hosting an Evening with Entrepreneurs and Security Start-up Spotlight. This reception and dinner features talks from founders who successfully have started, grown, and sold a security-related company. Our goal is to provide the audience with success stories, real-world examples, guidance and advice from people who have experienced the entire company lifecycle.
“We are very excited about our Evening with Entrepreneurs event,” said Stacy Thayer, Founder and Executive Director of SOURCE Conference. “We are featuring some great new start-ups and we have experienced entrepreneurs and company founders sharing insight and wisdom about taking a company from inception to acquisition from the founder perspective.” Speakers include Hugh Njemanze, Founder of Arcsight (acquired by HP in October 2010) and Scott Chasin, Founder of MXLogic (acquired by McAfee in 2009).
