We're trying out a new format for the May 21 webcast on Mobility and Security. We're going to bring in some researchers and some industry folks and have a round-table discussion on the current state and future direction of securing the mobile devices we all can't live without. The idea behind this new style of presentation is to increase the amount of interactivity, both with the guests and the audience, so please join us and bring your ideas and questions.
Also, as an additional incentive for you to come check out the new webcast format, one lucky registrant is going to get a free conference pass to Black Hat USA 2009.
