“ISC East is thrilled to welcome Tomás Maldonado and Ryan McKenzie as our 2022 keynote speakers; as we know, organizations today must take a more converged approach when implementing security solutions, and their expertise in cybersecurity and technology services will provide valuable insights to our attendees and assist security professionals in anticipating and responding to potential threats,” said Mary Beth Shaughnessy, RX Global Event Director, ISC Security Events.
