Two weeks from this Friday – on June 20th, 2008 – I’ll be giving the keynote presentation for the Georgia Society of CPA’s Tech Conference…Here’s the press release:
Kevin Beaver, independent information security expert with Atlanta-based Principle Logic, LLC, will be keynoting the Georgia Society of CPA’s 2008 Technology Conference. Kevin will apply his practical and no-nonsense approach to security in his presentation titled The Business Case for Information Security. He will outline why information security is a business problem and what can and should be done about it.
“I’m honored and humbled to have been invited to speak to a group of people that play such a key role in information security.” says Beaver. “The fact that many accounting professionals want to hear about information security issues says it all. Security’s not a technical problem that IT should own but rather a business issue that business people need to be involved with.”
