At the SASE CyberSummit, you'll have the opportunity to hear keynotes from tech industry veterans like Dow Jones' Chief Product and Technology Officer, Ramin Beheshti and AWS' Vice President, Public Sector Partners and Programs, Sandy Carter.

Beyond the keynotes, our virtual summit will feature five practical 30-minute sessions designed to provide your organization with the building blocks for SASE success. It all culminates in a session with Forcepoint's Chief Product Officer Nico Popp, He’ll leave you with a Blueprint for SASE Success—a practical approach to SASE that includes evaluation criteria for SASE platforms. This recent interview of Nico provides some insights into Forcepoint's vision of cloud-delivered security.
