Information Security Forum: Briefing for Senior Information Security & Risk Management Executives

  • TYPE: Pre-conference Event DATE: Tuesday, May 05, 2009 TIME: 09:00-13:00 LOCATION: LUNA
Conference Agenda

You are invited to join Information Security Forum (ISF) members and consultants for an Executive Briefing on Tuesday 5 May 2009, at the Forum am Deutschen Museum in Munich from 09:00 am to 12:30 pm. This briefing takes place as one of the pre-conference workshops of the European Identity Conference (EIC) 2009, and attendance is free of charge.

In addition to listening to presentations, you will have the opportunity to meet with your peers and participate in an interactive, facilitated exchange of ideas on the key issues facing information security and risk management leaders.

We will also share with you the results of ISF research performed for our 300+ global members that harnesses their knowledge and practical experiences to determine best security and risk practices and develop solutions to the problems every major organization faces.

Session One: An introduction to the Information Security Forum (ISF)

This session sets out to introduce you to the critical role ISF plays in the global information security community, and will demonstrate why ISF is widely recognized as being the leading independent authority in information risk management.

Session Two: Information risk in a downturn

As the global economic and business environment changes, the risks to an organisation will change in new and unpredictable ways. Based on the experience of ISF Member organisations across the globe, the key factors associated with a downturn that can critically affect an organisations risk profile will be explored. Practical steps that need to be taken urgently by the information risk function will be discussed and the prospect of new threats and technology challenges will be debated.

Session Three: Risk convergence

The regulatory pressures associated with risk management are expected to reach new levels over the coming years and there is an expectation that the senior (board) level management of an organisation will demand to see one overall picture of risk for the organisation. This session will explore the practicalities of risk convergence and the implications of it for information risk management. Drawing on good practice from across the world, it will propose a pragmatic approach that will enable information risk functions to realise the opportunities associated with risk convergence.

Join us for this senior-level discussion of key security and information risk management issues. Space is restricted to a first come first served basis, so please register early.

Registration to this briefing is free, but space is limited and reservations are required for attendance. Please visit this link to find out more and register.

We look forward to meeting you!
