Security Forum Forum 2010

As the global economy recovers in 2010, Security & Risk professionals must continue to balance tactical and technical responsibilities with the long-term strategic objectives of the business. To achieve this goal, you must aspire to transform your security organization from a reactive silo of technical security expertise to a proactive information risk management team. You must also adopt the same objectives and measures of success as the business.
This year's Security Forum Forum 2010 will focus on: 1) evaluating the maturity and effectiveness of the security organization; 2) laying out a road map for architectural optimization and innovation; and 3) ensuring that the right skills, incentives, and metrics are in place for the long-term success of the security program.
Key questions that this forum will answer:

  • How do you measure the maturity and the effectiveness of the security and risk management practice and build a road map for the future?
  • How do you build a data security architecture to protect information no matter who has it and where it rests?
  • How can you apply enterprise risk management disciplines to information security?
  • How do you embed security throughout the network, not just on the perimeter?
