Phil Quade, chief information security officer at Fortinet, will deliver a keynote address and engage participants in talks about digital convergence, security architecture, workforce skills gap and increasing global threats.

“Strategic collaboration between public and private organizations and across borders is critical as the physical and cyber worlds become more interconnected into our daily lives,“ said Quade.

Pedro Paixao, head of Fortinet's Latin America operations, will also participate in panel discussions at the event.

The symposium serves as the first cyber defense conference in the Latin American region.
