Tactics and best practices for taking on enterprise IT security threats

With the media covering the latest data breaches, cloud computing security questions going unanswered and hackers developing more sophisticated attacks, the IT department has a growing responsibility to protect customer and company data.

A data breach is not only a PR nightmare, but cause for customers to turn to competitors, exposing sensitive company information and racking up fines from industry regulators. CISOs and IT security executives must always have this in mind, as well as a host of other evolving concerns, from curbing Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) risk to controlling vulnerable social media data. In order for today's leading enterprises to operate smoothly, information security must be ahead of the hackers and kept abreast of the latest IT security topics and trends.

The CISO Summit will bring together C-level IT security executives, industry analysts and solution providers to discuss challenges and best practices in a relaxed, yet focused business setting. Agenda sessions include engaging Keynote Presentations, Thought Leadership sessions, CISO Think Tanks, Analyst Q&As and much more.

We at CDM Media know that in order for you to take time out of the office, it must be time well spent. The CISO Summit agenda offers a balanced schedule that will maximize your time and efforts, providing you with ideas and strategies truly capable of changing business practices.
