Program Overview

For most enterprise users, computer and network security just “happens” and they are largely oblivious to the actions taken behind the scenes to ensure operational capabilities that are trusted, protected, and highly available. But for those charged with ensuring Security Operations, there is a wealth of experience and information that can be shared to the benefit of the broader INFOSEC community.

The focus on security operations management is top-of-mind for Federal Government professionals who constantly face cyberattacks—from the minor, nuisance level to the massive and serious campaigns waged by cyber-adversaries. In order to serve the security operations professionals in public sector service, and to make available more information about the threat landscape, proven best practices, and continuing areas for concern, the 1105 Government Information Group has teamed with Merlin International and its partners to host an interactive, fast-paced program that will be offered at no charge to government information security practitioners and their strategic partners.

Mark your calendar now and plan to invest a few hours on December 4th to update your understanding of security operations management trends, including:

  • How leadership can and must encourage creation of reliable, yet flexible, enterprise security operations
  • What selected government organizations have undertaken to strengthen security operations centers (SOCs)
  • An overview of today’s most pressing concerns, challenges, and opportunities for those managing SOC processes, technologies, and outcomes
  • Strategies for automating and simplifying security operations, and where evolving tools can support agency efforts to ensure trusted computing environments
  • How recent technology trends are impacting security operations—from the data center to the cloud to the handheld device
  • What to expect in 2013 and how to prepare your organization for the next wave of cyber challenges

To close this program, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from internationally-recognized author Mark Bowden, who will discuss his latest book, The Finish—The Killing of Osama Bin Laden. As in his previous books, including best-seller Black Hawk Down, Bowden will share his findings on the search for the world’s most wanted man and how civilians and military personnel around the globe collaborated to bring this manhunt to its now well-known conclusion. The first 100 attendees will receive a copy of The Finish and have their copy signed by the author.

Register today and plan to attend this valuable professional exchange of ideas, technical information and visit with some of the preeminent industry partners in the security operations field.
