Agenda for Operator Partners

SPECIES is unique. It is the only conference where F-Secure customers are amongst themselves behind closed doors. No press, no externals. Just Operators and Partners in the room, willing to share experiences with each other. Our customers keep telling us how awesome and useful it is, which is why we keep doing it. There is nothing else like it. Our 13th straight year together.
