About the Theme: Any business that has been connected to the Internet has implemented one or more security products to protect themselves from attack. Over time the installed base of software and hardware increases, requiring more investment in technology and people. Where does it end?

When the news is awash in stories of millions of records and accounts being compromised, what can you do? How do you find people to manage your systems? How do you fit new products in when new requirements are levied for protecting your information? Where can you go for help? Are there systems and solutions that you can afford?

The 2018 conference will focus on building and maintaining an organizational security program in a world of constant change, where your refrigerator may be the source of the next attack, regulations are mandating increased vigilance, and every vendor is offering a new product that doesn’t integrate with the ones you already own.
