This time next month, I’ll be at the Akamai Edge customer conference. It’s a terrific opportunity to meet face-to-face with a lot of our customers and get their feedback on what’s working for them and what we can improve upon. A robust Web Security track of talks is planned, and I’ll be blogging about it.

Before that, I’ll be preparing some advance blog posts to give attendees a preview. This is the first such post — a glimpse at what’s on the schedule. Going forward, I’ll do previews of specific talks.

The security track will run each day of Edge. Here’s a partial list of what’s planned:
