Introducing Connected Security Expo’s New Education Advisory Board

January 26, 2016

Today’s security leaders across industries are being tasked with securing not only tangible assets, people and supply chains, but critical data, as well. Often this interconnectivity means an increase in complex risk scenarios, and now more than ever, leaders must be well educated on these risks and the means by which to offer protection. To answer this call, Reed Exhibitions introduces a new event: Connected Security Expo, which will be held concurrently with ISC West, April 6-8, 2016, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas. Designed with the CISO in mind, the Connected Security Expo aims to help them increase their understanding of the need for merging Cyber and physical security as part of the secure enterprise.

Connected Security Expo is backed by a host of thought leaders in the IT and security industries and has carefully selected a number of experts from both markets to serve on its conference advisory board. These four individuals, who offer more than 50 years of combined security and technology expertise, will provide guidance on session topics, and bring unique insight on new technologies and solutions that secure both physical and cyber infrastructures.

Please join us in welcoming our advisory board members:

  • Ed Adams, President and CEO, Security Innovation, is a software executive with successful leadership experience with organizations that serve the IT security and quality assurance industries. No stranger to the podium, Adams has presented to thousands at numerous seminars, conferences and private companies. Adams is a Ponemon Institute Fellow and founded the Application Security Industry Consortium, Inc. (AppSIC), a non-profit association of industry analysts, enterprise technologists and security leaders, established to define cross-industry application security metrics and best practices. AppSIC eventually became SAFECode at which point Adams became more engaged with other industry initiatives, including Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). Adams is on the board of the National Association of Information Security Groups (NAISG), and the International Secure Software Engineering Council (ISSECO). In February 2014, Adams was named a Privacy by Design Ambassador, which is a group of privacy thought leaders committed to ensuring the ongoing protection of personal information by following the Principles of PhD.
