Dr. Adou, a professor at Carleton University, shared his expertise in authentication & network security
Magno Logan, an Information Security Specialist at Trend Micro, spoke about application security and cloud security
Chris Whalen, Director of IT and Cyber Security at Solace, spoke on cryptography.
