Information Security and Risk Management
It is often said that you cannot protect what you do not know. Visibility has become a primary focus of many information risk management security programs and professionals alike. Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) often rate their lack of visibility into both their data assets and information infrastructure as one of their top concerns. Data and information assets are rarely constrained to an organization’s internal electronic and physical boundaries. There are also more computing assets, network connections, and storage capabilities in use than ever before. This proliferation of data and expansion of infrastructure has created the perfect opportunity for adversaries and their attacks to go unnoticed and addressed until their damaging effects have already been realized.
The Interop New York 2013 Information Security and Risk Management track will discuss key concepts, considerations, and technologies that are essential to successfully defend today’s organization from the well motivated, equipped, and capable cyber adversary. Sessions in the track will cover a broad range of topics from both a business a technology perspective. There will be sessions focused on emerging areas of interest and concern such as Mobility, Network Security, Compliance, and of course, visibility. Additionally, there will be some exciting and thought-provoking sessions on both application and network security that will reexamine how we approach these fundamental but vital concepts. The information risk management-focused sessions will explore areas including effective business alignment, technical information security concepts and considerations, cultural and human considerations, E-discovery concepts, and discussions of current and future trends that are determining the future shape and direction of the information risk management and security.
