Chou has been a visionary in the cloud software industry and a leading academic, held board seats with a number of successful tech companies, published several books on the evolution of the cloud, and captivated thousands of audience members with his presentations around the world.
Enfuse, which will be held from May 22-25 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, is one of the largest international gatherings focused on current trends in cybersecurity, information risk management, and digital investigations.
