DigiCert Security Summit is an annual gathering of the industry’s leading innovators and professionals to discuss the latest threats and best practices in digital security. In our seven years of Security Summit, 2021 was our first ever all-virtual event.
However, being virtual did not stop us from having fantastic discussions and important trainings and resources, nor did the pandemic slow down our progress over the last year. As Channel Futures put it, “Tuesday’s virtual DigiCert Security Summit highlighted a year of strong growth despite challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The Security Summit 2021 theme was “Level Up” because in 2021 it’s time to level up your digital security using automation and modern PKI solutions. Although security isn’t a game, you do need to level up your skills, knowledge and technology to defeat evolving threats. Check out the Summit intro video to see the progression of continuously leveling up your game to overcome increasingly difficult threats.
In the spirit of leveling up, we unveiled our new DigiCert® Automation Manager, a containerized enterprise solution for on-premises, high-volume TLS certificate automation, at Security Summit. Automation Manager is another addition to DigiCert’s industry-leading platform, DigiCert ONE™, built on a modern, cloud-native architecture that allows for flexibility and secure automation behind the enterprise network firewall. Automation Manager paves the way for secure, complete certificate management behind the firewall and on-premises to complement DigiCert’s current cloud offerings. The release of Automation Manager at Security Summit is the first of more solutions on DigiCert’s automation vision to come.
Close to 650 attendees from over 420 companies participated live this year, and with over 20 different breakout sessions and trainings, there was something for everyone. If you weren’t able to view sessions during Summit, you can still view them on-demand: simply register by May 7 and you will receive an email with instructions on how to create an account and access the sessions.
We’ve also pulled together the most popular sessions from this year. Notably, for the first time we had Brian Krebs join us for the opening session. Krebs is an independent investigative reporter and leading cybercrime journalist at the award-winning KrebsOnSecurity.com. Unfortunately, Krebs’s interview is exclusive to attendees who viewed it live. Contact email@example.com if you have questions about what he covered.

At Summit, we emphasized that you cannot stay stagnant when it comes to digital security. You have to continually progress your skills, technologies and practices to be prepared for ever-evolving threats like post quantum computing, which could be here sooner than we think. SolarWinds is a perfect example of what happens when companies do not evolve their security practices. Above all, we learned that automation is the security solution for now and the future. If you haven’t already, it’s time to level up your security management with automation.
