Chief Wine Officer and Veracode invite you to join us for an evening of business discussion around open source software and security, C-level networking, fine dining and premium wine tasting.
The financial services industry has some of the most mature cyber security practices. However, many institutions are increasingly leveraging open source software to compete and collaborate with fintechs. That’s fine in theory, but in practice it’s happening at unprecedented speed and scope. The result? Accelerating open source and third-party development is creating opportunities and new risks for financial services security leaders.
Join a select group of senior executives to:
Alongside the high-level business content, you’re invited to connect with other senior executives over a four-course gourmet dinner. This includes a fine wine tasting experience, hosted by a Master of Wine (one of just 383 in the world), and includes wine-related entertainment, education and friendly competition.
