About the SSA Summits

The Software Security Assurance Summit Series (SSA Summit Series) is multi-city series that brings together software and security practitioners and industry thought leaders to address key challenges as well as the best practices, innovative strategies and emerging solutions to enable you to secure the applications that run your business. Facilitated by T.E.N. and sponsored by HP Enterprise Security, this series is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with peers and industry experts about the increasing risk and vulnerabilities associated with flawed legacy applications, traditional software development and to examine the importance of the role of software security assurance within enterprises of all sizes. Each event features a dynamic keynote speaker and interactive roundtable discussions with industry experts that will provide valuable takeaways for immediate implementation and strategies for building and running more resilient software for a more secure enterprise.
