It’s Time for Security Reboot –
Don’t be the Next #Target
Security threats have never been more numerous or costly, and the push towards cloud and outsourced IT only increases the number of attack surfaces. While companies are spending more on IT security than ever before, and they’re not necessarily more secure.
In this session we’ll examine the risks and the root causes—challenging you to think about IT security in a different light. We’ll also present a new model for marrying technology, expertise and service delivery so you can secure the assets most important to your business and reduce infrastructure costs.
