SANTA CLARA, Calif. – September 3, 2013 – Senior security executives can interact and share their opinions on the state of cyber security at the second annual cyber security summit sponsored by Stonesoft, a McAfee Group Company and T.E.N., a national technology and security executive networking organization.
