Collaboration and Learning Opportunities Abound at Connected Security Expo @ ISC West

February 15, 2016

Over the years, a blurring between security practices has taken place. Gone are the days of a siloed IT and security operations — today, we’re witnessing the rise of the Internet of Things, Cloud-based infrastructures and virtualization, and there are myriad data safety concerns born out of these trends. According to a new report from Business Insider Intelligence, the spread of connected devices and investment in the Internet of Things will reach $118 billion between today and 2020. The study also highlights that total spending on cyber security will reach $140 billion, with 38% of that spending dedicated to securing IoT devices.

This market trend signifies that IT leaders are working harder than ever to develop stronger security infrastructures and networks within their organizations to accommodate the explosion of IoT devices, and that the goal is not only to enhance and ensure uptime and performance of the network, but also to protect assets, corporate data and, most of all, the vulnerable transitional phase from an analog to an IT-connected presence.

The Connected Security Expo @ ISC West sponsored by SIA was designed to bring together leaders from the cyber and physical security worlds to help building a holistic security strategy for the connected enterprise. The secure global enterprise can only be achieved when physical and information security integrate to mitigate emerging and complex cyber threats in a hyper-connected world.

Keynote speakers and panelists from some of the country’s leading security and cyber defense organizations will shed light on specific emerging network trends, such as reducing time to tamper, address organizational challenges within the corporate environment, help identify common risks and address your organization’s security concerns and questions. These varied sessions will open the discussion for CISOs, CIOs and CSOs to continue working together and provide a call to action for enterprises seeking to transform the nature of risk assessment in an IT-driven environment.

The conference sessions are offered in two unique tracks: People and Process, and Technology. The People and Process educational offerings include discussions centered on navigating the relationship between information security officers and physical security directors, as well as engaging corporate boards in cyber security discussion and risk management. Speakers will also address how to building a collaborative framework within an enterprise to address information risk. Technology track sessions will delve into specific security solutions that are currently disrupting the status quo and redefining best practices for threat detection, and building effective, coordinated response plans.

Here are just a few reasons why you should attend this year’s inaugural Connected Security Expo:
