Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
The St. Louis CISO Summit, presented by EC-Council and Parameter Security, is making waves in the St. Louis region and beyond. One of the reasons the event is getting such a warm welcome in the local area, according to Eric Lopez, Conference Director for EC-Council, is the professional stature of the speakers: “When an event is able to draw big names it assures the community that the information being presented will be top notch.” The St. Louis CISO Summit’s agenda boasts some impressive speakers, including Erick Rudiack, CISO of Express Scripts; Timothy McLaughlin of Amdocs; Gary Harbison, CISO of Monsanto; and Richard Rushing, CISO of Motorola Mobility.
The Summit’s format consists of three keynotes each followed by a panel discussion on the same topic. The intent of this format is to give the audience a deeper understanding of each topic presented and the time to discuss the issue at length in a collaborative, open environment. Topics to be covered include an in-depth look at securing data, led off by a keynote by Erick Rudiak entitled “Maturity Models Deep Dive.” The panel that follows Rudiak’s presentation will take the topic of securing data and expand on it, allowing the audience to ask questions to continue the conversation. Timothy McLaughlin’s presentation, “Designing & Managing an Effective Security Program” will tackle the managerial, operational, and policy aspects of starting and continuing a world-class information security program. Also on the agenda is a real-time hacking demonstration by Dave Chronister. He intends to leave the audience questioning the security of their networks and to show the room full of executives that the methods hackers are using today can circumvent even the most up-to-date security systems.
Another reason for the event’s success is that it is being co-hosted by a St. Louis company that is known for innovative information security solutions: Parameter Security. The combination of EC-Council’s longstanding global reputation of excellence in the information security industry and Parameter Security’s local reputation as the go-to pentesters, forensic analysts, and training providers has speakers and attendees expecting a fantastic event.
Only information security executives are invited to register for the event. Others interested in information security events can attend TakeDownCon, EC-Council’s highly-successful, highly-technical hacking conference.
