Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
Clearwater Compliance announced today that it has agreed to become a Gold Sponsor for InfoSec2012. This annual event is now in its 12th year and has become the Southeast’s leading security conference. Jointly presented by the Nashville Technology Council and the Middle Tennessee chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), InfoSec brings technologists and information security professionals together for a full day of learning with exciting speakers and innovative exhibits as well as important networking opportunities.
According to Bob Chaput, Clearwater’s founder and CEO, “Trust is the foundation of the health care delivery system in this cyber age, yet data breaches of personal health information, or PHI, are growing in frequency and in magnitude. Investing in protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of PHI by implementing sound information systems security solutions and practices is an important business decision for all health care organizations. “Clearwater is proud to sponsor an important event such as InfoSec because it provides an opportunity for critical education, hands on exposure, and a forum for conversation and sharing about cyber security for such a large contingent of information security professionals.”
Over 400 attendees are expected, where they’ll experience more than 30 exhibitors and hear two-dozen locally and nationally recognized experts speak and interact on a full gamut of relevant topics. InfoSec 2012 offers three industry-recognized keynote speakers, panel discussions and multiple breakout sessions focusing on technical and management issues, as well as healthcare and other industry regulations in the security industry.
The event is being held at the Nashville Convention Center on Thursday, September 13, 2012. Exhibits will open at 8:00 AM and remain available until 6:00 PM. For more information and to register, visit http://www.technologycouncil.com/connect/infosec-2012/
