Segmentation: A practical guide
by: Ben Parker of Palo Alto Networks
We all know we should be segmenting networks to make it harder to compromise or gain additional access. The real question is how do you do that while still ensuring the applications and traffic that the business needs functioning continue. This talk will dive into the various different architectures and the traffic flows and advantages or disadvantages of each method.

From there he moved to a role of designing and implementing secure networks and appliances for customers across Ohio. Since joining Palo Alto Networks he has assisted clients in taken a Prevention focused security posture reducing institutional risk through adapting a zero trust framework in line with the clients’ business goals.
Fireside Chat with a Developer: Web Applications with Python and Flask
by: Charles Yost of Binary Defense
Have you ever wanted to build web applications with Python, but didn’t know where to start? Let’s talk about it! Together we will go though the process of setting up a web application with Python and Flask. We will be starting from nothing, and build up to a functioning web application. This will familiarize you with Python and show you how easy it is to get started. We will also explore ways to extend a basic web application with additional functionality in the form of Flask Extensions. And we will do it all live!
