Keynote: Safety in numbers, securing our BEAM

This talk will discuss the growing utility of the BEAM and how it is being used to support a broad industry landscape. Further discussing security concepts and the things we take for granted, how implied security does not always result in security and how further conversation around tooling and dependencies in our ecosystem will only serve to increase adoption.
