Web Conference Overview:

In today’s economy, security professionals and technologies are often victims of their own success. When security is well implemented and managed, it can become nearly invisible. Organizations rarely see the impact of unsuccessful malicious attacks, and the benefits of security may go unnoticed or be totally undetectable. Most organizations may even refrain from purchasing anything that will not have immediate visible results for the bottom line. This mindset extends not only to the operations of the organization, but also to the very applications the company creates and purchases. This session will demonstrate why senior management should buy into mandating security functionality for the applications they develop, purchase, and deploy, while providing informative strategies for conveying this message.
