Updated September 30, 2021.

If you want to simplify, secure, and scale your hybrid cloud, datacenter, or 5G environment with complete visibility, you’ll want to attend our upcoming Visualyze conference and hear from the Gigamon experts and industry leaders who will be sharing their insights.

This virtual conference runs from May 11 through 13 in the Americas and Europe and May 12 through 14 in Asia Pacific. And it’s free for everyone. (Read on for information on Continuing Professional Education credits you can earn.)

Big Keynotes from Amazing Speakers

Day 1 Keynote: Cyberattack Trends, Big Breaches, and Cloud Security

Tuesday, May 11 at 3:45 p.m. GMT/7:45 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time.

The conference gets underway with a fireside chat with award-winning journalist Brian Krebs and author Neil Daswani.

Brian Krebs scarcely needs an introduction for security pros: He’s an award-winning investigative journalist who started his career at the Washington Post before launching his own independent site, Krebs on Security. Neil Daswani, for his part, is the author of Big Breaches, which explains in plain English some of the biggest data breaches experienced to date, and is the current co-director of the Stanford Advanced Security Certification Program.

Brian and Neil will explore recent big hacks and breaches, including SolarWinds and Capital One. They’ll also cover attack trends, cloud security, and how enterprise organizations can approach cybersecurity differently, and they’ll help you get inside the heads of your adversaries by discussing ransomware, hacker motivation, and nation-state vs. organized cybercriminal hackers.

Day 3 Keynote: Living in the Cloud

Thursday, May 13 at 3 p.m. GMT/7 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time

Author and futurist Thomas Koulopoulos will discuss the rich and complex cloud ecosystems that will be at the heart of every major trend in our business, economy, government, and society — changing the way we run today’s businesses and making possible new business models we have yet to conceive.

Thomas Koulopoulos is the visionary founder of Delphi Group, a 30-year-old Boston-based think tank, and is the founding partner of Acrovantage Ventures, which invests in early-stage technology startups. He’s entertaining, insightful, and often unorthodox, and his unique perspective will help us prepare for the next 30 years of living in the cloud.
