Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2015
The Los Angeles Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA-LA) is holding its Seventh Annual Information Security Summit on June 4 – 5, 2015 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The Summit theme, The Growing Cyber Threat: Protect Your Business, reflects the reality that cybercrime impacts the financial health of all our organizations: businesses, government agencies, healthcare, schools, nonprofits, and the entertainment industry. The Summit will highlight emerging solutions to the challenges of cybercrime.
“Since Los Angeles is the entertainment capitol of the world, ISSA-LA is reaching out to this industry and inviting everyone with information security responsibilities to attend the Summit,” said ISSA-LA President Dr. Stan Stahl. “We have a full day of security management programs for security and IT professionals. Our CISO Forum is designed for security leaders. And our special Executive Forum is designed for executives, including chief executive officers (CEOs), chief financial officers (CFOs), chief operating officers (COOs), chief legal officers (CLOs) and chief risk officers (CROs). These are the people who must work together to prevent cyberattacks like the one that attacked Sony Corp.”
The ISSA-LA Summit is the only educational forum in Los Angeles specifically designed to encourage participation and interaction in finding solutions to cybercrime. The Summit is part of ISSA-LA’s important community outreach program. The goal of the program is to help the community stay safe from cybercrime by enabling the necessary collaboration between business, nonprofit and community leaders, technical IT professionals, law enforcement and the information security community.
Registration is open to anyone interested in learning more about information: business professionals in law, healthcare, accounting, insurance and banking; technical IT personnel; law enforcement professionals fighting cybercrime; faculty and students in college and university cybersecurity programs; and information security practitioners.
