Following on from the success of the 8th Information Security & Risk Management Dialogue, we are pleased to announce that the 9th event in the series will take place on 21st-22nd October at The Hilton Hotel, Brighton.
Combating changing security threats
Information security is one of the most important issues facing companies today.
The constantly evolving landscape perpetually reveals new security threats, and in response information security strategies need to be refined to adjust to this ever changing environment.
The increasing number and ease by which DDoS attacks can be launched; the growing instances and sophistication of malware, the demands on the CISO to protect the brand online and maturing technologies/practices such as cloud computing, cloud security, mobile and big data are all here to stay.
In addition, as more and more companies share core information assets including customer data, intellectual property, business partners and outsourced suppliers, they increase their business risk which in turn must be shared with the board.
It is no surprise then that spending on security remains a priority in order to enable organisations to keep up with key protective actions – information security, business continuity and IT robustness.
The Information Security & Risk Management Dialogue is the exclusive networking summit for Heads & Directors of Information Security.
This is the UK's leading CISO networking event and brings together C-level executives from both the public and private sector in the UK and Ireland to network and share best practice.
Through a series of case study presentations, round table discussions, workshop sessions and one-to-one meetings, you can share your experiences with like-minded professionals who face a similar set of challenges, gain new insights and equip yourself with practical solutions that will secure your organisation going forward.
Key topics to be covered include:
- Understanding and adapting to the new threat horizon
- Managing and reporting risk
- Changing the company approach to security
- Becoming and remaining PCI compliant
- Identity and access management
- What is required from the CISO of tomorrow?
- BYOD — Securing the mobile enterprise
- How to engage senior management in security risk - even when it isn‘t in the news
- What are the current best practice risk indicators and security metrics?
- How can the CISO best deal with the increase in DDoS attacks?
