IT Security Summit New Mexico: The Perfect Storm
Money, skills and patience.
Cybercriminals have an abundance of all of these factors. There is little debate that your organization, large or small, private industry or federal government, has and will continue to be targeted by cybercriminal activity.
As opportunities to reduce costs and improve productivity with virtualization and a variety of mobile devices present new challenges, the information technology and security community prepares for the Perfect Storm.
Whether your organization has recently consolidated your infrastructure using virtualization or you want to better understand the current security threats, you won’t want to miss the ITSSNM in Santa Fe.
ITSSNM 2012 will be a dynamic forum where government, academia and private industry Information Technology and Information Assurance professionals will have the opportunity to network, exchange information and engage in discussions on IT Security best practices, trends, and emerging technologies.
The IT Security Summit NM will look at the gathering storm as well as ways to be prepared in this changing environment.
Preparing for the Perfect Storm will look at:
- Global Security Trends:
- What threats are most likely to impact your organization?
- ‘Cloud’ Computing:
- The Cloud computing model has emerged as a miracle pill that will drive down IT infrastructure costs and increase productivity, but at what cost?
- Advanced Persistent Threats (APT):
- Sophisticated targeted attacks are nothing new, but what resources are available and how are organizations managing?
- When does this make sense and how are organizations of all sizes approaching the process and what has been successful?
- Web Application Security:
- As we become more dependent on web- based tools and increase our use of mobile devices in the workplace, what kinds of vulnerabilities are we creating?
