Strategies for closing the IT security risk management gap
The IT Leaders Forum brings together the senior IT professionals who drive technology decisions within major UK enterprises. The forum provides delegates with the opportunity to meet and mix with their peers, hear first-hand about key developments through real-life case-study presentations, and partake in debate on today's major technology issues.
It is generally understood these days that it is impossible to deliver perfect security and it has become the accepted wisdom that security is a ‘managed' risk. Not only does the technology change all the time, but so does the attack surface and the techniques of the attackers, who deploy ever more sophisticated methods to achieve their goal.
Accordingly, organisations audit their processes, people, technology, catalogue risk and data assets, and make spending and resource allocations on this basis - rolling the dice with an eye to the odds. The good news is that pretty much every major UK enterprise - public or private - is on board with the need for audit and proper process. The not so good news is that whilst half of UK plc is quietly confident that risk has been managed, the other half have quite severe doubts - they know their process is lip-service.
Our next IT Leaders Forum will discuss just exactly why some IT teams make the business case successfully and ensure that sufficient budget is granted and is invested in the optimum areas - whilst some don't. Our speakers will delve into current best practices for information security risk management and will examine what you need to do to turn process into something meaningful that actually delivers improved confidence.
*Complimentary attendance is for senior IT professionals only.
