Words from one of the organisers, Dinis Cruz, CISO and SVP Engineering, Glasswall: "The Summit is all about collaboration and sharing. This year we introduced the concept of training sessions which occur in the two weeks before the main Summit event. These training sessions are delivered by real-work practitioners that are generously sharing their knowledge for a worldwide audience of information security professionals and students"
