Liquid Networx CEO Don Douglas values the importance and timeliness of the event as it spurs discussion around the ever-critical issues of network and PCI security. “We are committed to raising the visibility of security issues regionally and with our customers, and excited to be bring in high-caliber speakers and partners from around the country to San Antonio,” said Douglas.

Because the two-day event splits time between the Aztec Theater and the Texas Ranger Museum, Douglas adds, “Attendees will have an opportunity to enjoy an historical, if not unusual, perspective on what security used to be.”
