Fortinet senior leaders have been invited to share insights at the Inter-American Defense Foundationâ€™s Cyber Defense Conference: Western HemisphereÂ that will take place in Bogota, Colombia.
The two-day event, launched in partnership with the Colombian military and Inter-American Defense Board, will see Fortinet executives discuss cyber issues and macro-level strategies with delegates representing 26 countries and seven organizations, Fortinet said Monday.
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.
â€œStrategic collaboration between public and private organizations and across borders is critical as the physical and cyber worlds become more interconnected into our daily lives,â€ said Quade.
Pedro Paixao, head of Fortinetâ€™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.
