Read on for news, photos and updates from the first day of Ignite 2016 and what’s to come on Day 2 and Day 3.

Welcome Back

Ignite 2016 kicked off Sunday with pre-conference Ultimate Test Drives and hands-on workshops designed for security practitioners boning up on the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform. Heading into Monday, we tackled the big questions around how to create an intelligence-led security program, how to create and maintain a disruptive endpoint protection system, how to address IT-OT integration and regulatory compliance in the utilities sector, and many more topics that will continue to drive the cybersecurity conversation this year.


Finally, we convened for a hearty opening reception – and inducted no fewer than eight new books into the Cybersecurity Canon, our hall-of-fame for cybersecurity literature. (Read all about the Cybersecurity Canon and this year’s inductees.)
