The inaugural SC World Congress takes place in New York December 9 & 10.
Defending your enterprise networks from today's many threats is hard enough without having to figure out how to keep up with even newer techniques cybercriminals are using to try to break into them.
“Many suggest today that the cybercrime market has been cornered by organized crime and nation states. In many cases, these organizations have all but pushed aside the script kiddies, slacker-hackers, and fun boys of old,” says one speaker, Stan Waddell, assistant VP and CISO, UT Southwestern Medical Center.
“Recent attacks on the SQL infrastructure of the internet and against U.S. diplomats visiting foreign states, strongly support that sentiment. It is an escalation of arms in which many would say the good guys are lagging behind.”
That's why we've launched our first SC World Congress Conference and Expo. The event will bring together leading experts to help you understand what corporate apps and tools are being used by online assailants trying to breach your systems, gain a better understanding of the latest regulatory compliance issues, and learn ways to do your jobs better.
Keeping apprised of how the cybercriminal works isn't just part of your job, it's critical for those investigators you call for help, as well. John Iannarelli, supervisory special agent with the FBI, who will be speaking about cyber investigation, says online crime is a top concern.
“The topic of international cyber investigations we are exploring at the SC World Congress is meant to demonstrate the depth of our commitment,” he says.
Still more leading experts will be on hand to share their thoughts and advice.As well as providing an opportunity for networking with your peers, the event includes several tracks, including one co-produced by ISACA's NY Chapter. There are six plenary sessions that, together with the expo, are completely free to attend. There will also be several interactive sessions, certification credits offered by (ISC)2 and Security University, special evening events, a bustling expo floor, and more.
The whole SC team looks forward to welcoming you to its inaugural conference and expo.
