Despite budget cuts made across the board, many companies did not compromise on IT security. This is because much of our daily life is dependent on computers. We check our emails and log onto social networking sites several times a day. For many industries, emailing is a common mode of communication and we often take for granted the stability and security of our software.
With computer hackers becoming increasingly sophisticated and the number of emerging threats rising, it is important to equip ourselves with the right preventive measures. IT security problems arise not only from external sources, but also from careless behavior. This can be easily solved by providing relevant training and ongoing awareness communications and activities for employees and students.
IT security refers to a company’s ability to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their data and transactions. The current standards for IT security are ISO 27001 standard and NIST 800 standard series.
As the need for IT security expands, so will the influx of security programs. Therefore, it is crucial to be well informed and educated with the right information to cater to your respective needs. The IT security conference will discuss a range of topics from various preventive methods and finding the right one for your business.
The conference program offers insightful plenary and keynote addresses, stimulating technical sessions, seminars and panel discussions, poster sessions and multiple social and networking opportunities.
