Information Security is establishing its place among the chief of concerns at the executive level. Information Security is widely recognized as a strategic discipline, requiring formal and holistic processes.  These processes and the technologies they rely on are subject to change and enhancement, given the evolving nature of threats and risks to the enterprise.

What are Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and their information security personnel to do when facing the evolving threat landscape and, simultaneously, demands from enterprise leaders (and customers) to achieve the highest levels of integrity, confidentiality, and availability?  Experienced CISOs understand these challenges and rise above them to achieve organizational objectives and operational excellence. They seek out the latest and greatest in point solutions, while enhancing and evolving their processes to pivot and adjust to the evolving threat landscape.

Attendees will walk away with the following:
  • Perspective as to where security related processes break down and require enhancement.
  • Better understanding of process improvements that have been identified as effective and valuable in the field.
