Security is becoming the most important issue for enterprises and CIOs. The new threats are everywhere. It’s not high school kids hacking for fun anymore. Cybercrime is sponsored by governments, corporations, and organized crime that have the resources to hire top talent, and the patience to pick away, for months at a time, until an attack has been successful.

Previous security models that constructed a ‘fortress’ around the enterprise are no longer effective. In addition to the increasingly sophisticated attackers, the proliferation of devices adds millions of new vulnerability points. And even if your enterprise is secure, your partners and global outsourcers might not be, providing a vector into your enterprise. Liabilities from security breaches damage brands and dwarf other losses. Security is no longer just the concern of a few specialized personnel. It will be elevated to a top priority of CEOs and senior leaderships, either proactively, or reactively in response to yet another expensive incident. Executives have and will lose their job as a consequence of breaches. However, the CIO and IT is also best positioned to address Security and raise awareness to the business.

This seminar will provide a practical, comprehensive, and architectural approach to helping CIOs and security personnel address evolving security threats and environment. The seminar is structured as a combination of presentation, interactive discussion and group based exercises, so participants get the chance to apply the concepts learned to example scenarios during the facilitated exercises.
