Information Risk Management in 2013: Ready for Prime Time?

Date/Time: February 25, 2013 @ 3:15 PM
Abstract: The flood of disruptive technologies is putting information security teams to the test. They are being asked to manage the risks and enable mobile, cloud, social, and big data – all at once at lightning speeds! As “information security” moves to “information risk management,” do security teams really have what it takes to be risk advisers? What tools and techniques will help them gauge risk appetites across diverse global enterprises and manage them to acceptable levels? How will they have the bandwidth? Is it time to move to off-the-shelf security services in order to focus less on operations and more on risk management? This session will discuss what an effective information risk management program looks like in 2013.
