Tech Security Talks
A few weeks ago Clayten Hamacher, a software developer from Salesforce came down to Unbounce’s office (we’re in the same building) to pitch a day-long security conference. He had a lot of great ideas, but needed a partner in crime to help execute on them. We sat down and after some initial planning, decided to scale it back to one night of talks on tech security.
Chris Evans, the head of Security for Google Chrome and a bit of a security legend, was coming to Vancouver for CanSecWest so we rallied together and convinced him to do an informal Q&A. Clayten was able to get Devanshu Patel, Security Awareness and Training Manager at Salesforce (also from San Francisco) to talk about gamifying security while I worked on getting our third speaker. Looking around town, there really was no one better to talk about security than a man who started a cloud-based CRM for lawyers; quite possibly the toughest customer segment in terms of security concerns. Jack Newton, CEO of Clio was happy to be our third speaker and talk about making the cloud secure enough that even a lawyer would use it.
Last night, everything came together for Tech Security Talks. There was pizza, beer, around 120 people and all three speakers were amazing! All brought different perspectives and backgrounds to the event and then we had an open Q&A at the end with some great conversations. Big shoutout to Unbounce’s CTO Carl Schmidt who held everything together and kept the energy high and audience engaged.
Here are a few photos from the event, thanks to everyone that came out!
