Welcome back to The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, where the biggest, boldest, best installment yet of Ignite Conference is already in full swing.

Read on for news, photos and updates from Ignite 2016 and what’s to come over the next few days.
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.)
