Third Annual Information Security and Compliance Forum Slated for April

On April 20, business leaders will gather at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. for the third annual Information Security and Compliance Forum. The forum, presented by QTS, is designed to bring thought leaders together to discuss important questions that impact the data security and compliance industry. Attendees will all gain an insider’s perspective on the latest information and cyber security trends, as well as the compliance trends that organizations face today.

At the 2015 forum, industry leaders gathered in San Jose, CA, where they heard from several speakers including Justin Somaini, now the Chief Security Officer at SAP. After the event, Somaini talked about how helpful the forum was.

“There were a lot of engaging conversations, not just around security as it is today and where we need to go, but also the compliance aspects of how the industry, how companies, and how various countries are dealing with compliance,” Somaini said.

ISCF 2015 panelist Laura Clark Fey, a data compliance attorney, echoed Somaini’s review of the event: “I think its really important for companies to have the opportunity to learn more about information security and data privacy,” she said. “This type of event that brings together different experts in those areas is really important.”

This year’s forum promises to bring more of the same for attendees. Timothy Brown, Chief Technology Officer for Dell Security Solutions, will deliver the results of the Dell Annual Security Survey, as well as a presentation on on utilizing the power of analytics to evolve IT security.

Also presenting will be Michael Theis, Chief Counterintelligence Expert at the CERT Insider Threat Center Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. Theis will share his knowledge from empirical research and best practices analyzed for more than 15 years and talk about how to best prevent, detect and respond to malicious and unintentional insider threats. 

Other speakers include the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Paul Grassi and Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst at IT-Harvest.

The forum begins at 8 a.m. on April 20, with registration and a continental breakfast starting at 7:30. Lunch will be served at the forum and a networking reception will follow the event from 5 to 6:30 p.m.
