This dynamic event promises to accelerate attendees into the future, offering unparalleled insights and inspiration from forward-thinking leaders poised to reshape the security landscape. 

At the OpenXChange Breakfast, attendees will have the unique opportunity to encounter visionary leaders who will challenge them to reimagine the business of security. Through compelling panel discussions and thought-provoking presentations, industry experts will unveil disruptive technologies and emerging trends that will shape the future of the security industry and redefine the trajectory of companies within it. 

“OpenXchange is not just about sharing ideas; it’s about a catalyst for transformative conversations with industry thought leaders.” says George De Marco, ESX Chairman “We unlock a wealth of information and possibilities and spotlight invaluable insights that shape the future for both the industry and for security professionals.” 

Moderated by George De Marco, ESX Chairman, the expert panelists include:

“Humans have a tendency of overstating the short-term impact technology while missing the long-term trends. AI is no different–we are on a long-term wave that will do nothing short of transform the value we provide to our customers, how we deliver it, and how much value the industry creates,” says David Selinger, Co-Founder/CEO of Deep Sentinel.
