Industry experts Kevin Mandia (Founder and Former CEO of Mandiant) with Ted Schlein (Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers), Nate Fick (Founder and CEO of Endgame), and Lieutenant General Ken Minihan (Paladin Capital, Former Director of NSA) discuss why and how organizations must rethink their security approach as well as how companies should prioritize to protect themselves today as well as tomorrow.

Malware has a very short lifetime. But how short is it? Zheng Bu will present his study on the surprisingly fat-head, long-tail lifetime of malware and the challenges that arise from this.
