Plano, TX (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
Understanding and defending against the latest cyber attack methods will be the focus when Layered Tech Chief Risk Officer Jeff Reich moderates an expert panel at the 2013 InnoTech San Antonio conference. The fifth annual InnoTech San Antonio conference is expected to attract more than 1000 business and technology professionals from the region for a day-long series of presentations, exhibits, and panel discussions on April 17 at San Antonio’s Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
In a conference panel discussion titled “Security – It’s All About Perspective”, veteran IT security professionals will get past the media hype and talk about what really happens on the front lines of data protection. In particular, panelists will offer insight into how things look from both sides of today’s digital firewalls: how hackers look for and exploit vulnerabilities, and how security specialists work to keep threats at bay. In doing so, the panel will dissect some of the most recent and high risk attacks and data compromises.
As Layered Tech’s CRO, panel moderator Reich is instrumental in ensuring ongoing data security for the compliant managed hosting and cloud services that Layered Tech provides at its global network of data centers. A Distinguished Fellow with the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), Reich is a well-known industry expert on security and risk management, and a regular speaker at technology industry conferences.
“Media coverage of cyber threats tends to shed more heat than light,” said Reich. “With this very strong panel of seasoned IT security pros, we’ll be able to take the audience into the trenches and help them get a deeper understanding of today’s threats, and what can be done about them.”
The panel led by Reich is scheduled for 3:00pm, as the culmination of a day-long Cyber Security Symposium to be held as part of the InnoTech San Antonio Conference. For further information on InnoTech San Antonio, visit http://www.innotechconferences.com/sanantonio/ .
