Your move to the cloud Secured Varun Badhwar, SVP Products & Engineering, Public Cloud Security - Palo Alto Networks

The public cloud is often thought of as something completely separate but the reality is that it should be managed and secured in the same way as the rest of the IT infrastructure. Having a single approach to protecting the whole IT environment removes complexity, reduces cost and improves security. In this session we will look at how the move to the cloud can integrated into a single security strategy for the whole organisation while simultaneously accelerating the digital transformation.

Cloud Transformation Everywhere James Brown, Head of EMEA Public Cloud - Palo Alto Networks

There is much more to cloud security than just protecting your workloads. The way that users interact with applications, where they get access from, which applications they use. Trying to secure these things often needs a selection of different products and management processes. In this session we will look at how we can remove the complexity of managing users and applications and how they interact.

Louwman Museum

The Louwman Museum is home to the world’s oldest private collection of motor cars, compiled by two generations of the Louwman family. The museum dates back to 1934 and now comprises over two hundred and fifty antique and classic motor cars. Experts regard the collection as one of the most beautiful in the World. The museum exudes passion. Each car has its own story to tell, its own contribution to history. The motor car is a mirror of culture.

The collection is housed in a purpose-built museum in The Hague, the city where P.W. Louwman established his Dodge and Chrysler import company. The building, designed by American architect Michael Graves, blends in sympathetically with its historic surroundings. The landscape gardens, designed by Lodewijk Baljon, complement the architecture of the building.
