#IICSG2018 Conference Insights Track
Day 2 (25 May 2018)
@ Stamford Ballroom (Sophia)

Security, just like other forms of risk, should be applied in a way that maximizes the effectiveness of the program. In this session, we'll discuss some of the decision-making process around formulating a security program for such a decentralized organization and the lessons learned through that process.
