ISF Runs Global Security Briefings

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- The Information Security Forum (ISF) is hosting 13 executive security briefings around the world during October, November and December to raise greater awareness of the risks to information security and emerging threats. These interactive sessions aimed at senior information security and risk executives, will start in Chicago on 9 October and run in New York, Toronto, Charlotte, Atlanta, Mexico City, Paris, Madrid, Munich, London, Sharjah, Mumbai and finish in Pretoria on 6 December.

The Information Security Forum is a not-for-profit international association of over 300 major companies and public sector organisations across 25 countries, including half of the Fortune 100. The ISF is the leading independent authority on information security and has invested more than $100million in delivering practical research, in-depth authoritative reports and advanced methodologies and risk assessment tools.

The events will focus on three main topics. ‘Managing the Complexity of Security – Hints and Tips from the Front Line’ will look at the IT security challenges faced by ISF members and how they have overcome them. The second part, ‘Assessing and Reducing Business Risk’, will explore efficient and cost-effective ways to approach information risk, drawing on the ISF’s extensive research, surveys and methodologies for best practice risk management.

The final session entitled, ‘Where is the Pain?’, is an interactive roundtable discussion about the common information security problems faced by organisations in day-to-day business. This will be driven by attendees so the topics may vary from virtualisation and digital rights management (DRM) to data leakage.
