Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 13, 2014

Seccuris Inc., the leader in Enterprise Security Architecture and Information Assurance Integration, will be delivering a security briefing in Austin, Texas covering the increasing challenges facing today’s Chief Information Security Officers. The speaker, Tim McCreight, a former government CISO, will discuss the security and operational issues he faced, the methodologies and best practices he used to resolve them, and how other security professionals can do the same.

“The typical day of a CISO should be spent collecting accurate, actionable intelligence on the multiple risks threatening their security network,” explained Tim McCreight. “But these days, dwindling budgets, lack of personnel, and overly complex devices are making it more difficult than ever for security executives to protect their companies. In this presentation, we’ll discuss proven and cost-effective solutions to those obstacles.”

The security briefing, entitled “A Day In the Life of a CISO,” will include:

  • Building an effective security network, even without the budget and staff you wanted.
  • Knowing what you don’t know about security threats (and why you need to know it).
  • Gaining access to network intelligence without the overhead or investment.
  • Determining where security risks exist and if they’re actually worth worrying about.
  • Compiling accurate and real information you can use in executive discussions.
  • How to avoid running your team ragged performing the wrong tasks.

Tim McCreight (CISSP, CPP, CISA) has over 30 years of operational experience and a wealth of real-world knowledge in both IT and physical security. He is a sought-after keynote speaker for security conferences across North America, and the author of several articles for major industry publications.

There is no charge to attend the briefing. It will be held on February 26, 2014 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at
The County Line On The Lake restaurant in Austin. Attendees will also receive complimentary lunch. To register, go to: http://conta.cc/1cpfGR1
