If you find yourself in Milan Italy on April 16, come by and join me! Here’s the press release:
Kevin Beaver, independent information security expert with Atlanta-based Principle Logic, LLC, will be keynoting the IDC Security Conference 2008 in Milan, Italy. Kevin will apply his practical and no-nonsense approach to security in his discussion titled Real World Security Problems You Can’t Afford to Overlook. He will outline information security risks that many professionals haven’t considered or are viewing from the wrong perspective and Kevin will make his case for information security issues that he believes need attention now.
“I’m very honored to have been invited to speak at a conference with such high visibility.” says Beaver. “The general message of the IDC show is indicative of what’s going on worldwide. There are serious business problems associated with the lack of information security that need more direct attention than they’re getting now.”
“IDC believes that information protection and control will be a major area of investment over the next five years.” says Alessia Massari of IDC Southern Europe. “Reasons at the bottom line are that IPC is needed to protect sensitive information. We expect to see more examples of high-profile incidents in which customer records, confidential information and intellectual property are leaked. The Conference in Milano will give an updated overview on what is going on in one of the key markets in EMEA”.
