Session 1 (10:10-11:00AM): “Security On A Budget”
* Presented by Eugene Slobodzian (Winxnet)
Description: Many small to medium-sized business owners think that the likelihood of an information breach affecting their business is low, and therefore choose not to invest in a complex information security management system. What we will show you is that the cost of implementing basic security measures can be surprisingly affordable, especially when compared to the cost of a security breach. It is only through the understanding of the potential threats and the resulting cost of inaction that leaders can fully appreciate the need for a proactive approach to information security.
This session will discuss the fundamentals of information security, tips about the most-bang-for-your-buck security tools, and how to effectively minimize your risk with limited resources in a small business environment.

Session 3 (1:00-1:50PM): “Enterprise Security, Where Do We Go From Here?
* Presented by Roy Panting & Peter Dwyer (IBM)
Description: Enterprise security has evolved over the years to include firewalls, DMZ's, and access control applications. In today's environment these methods are just not adequate. Factors that are complicating enterprise security include mobile access, cloud computing, regulatory requirements and big data. Based on what we are seeing recently, the need for effective enterprise wide security has to be managed and controlled from a risk vs. cost perspective. During this presentation we will focus on how the enterprise security model has changed, how it can be applied today and more importantly where we think it may be heading in the future.
