The tour makes stops on Friday, April 5 in Santa Clara, Calif., Monday, April 8 in Arlington, Va., and Wednesday, April 10 in New York, N.Y. The 45-minute panels begin each day at 10:15 a.m.
“Security is the number one concern for executives today and we believe that there needs to be a significant amount of education around correctly implementing an enterprise security strategy,” said Matthew Kovar, CFA, director of Security Solutions Services at the Yankee Group. “TruSecure is an emerging leader in the managed security services space, with hundreds of customers worldwide. Mr. Joseph and Mr. Horst bring a vast amount of real-world experience and insight from helping companies maximize their enterprise security efforts in the most cost- effective way possible.”
The panel discussion titled, “The ROI of Security: How, When & Why,” will discuss how to keep an enterprise secure without bankrupting the bottom line. Now more than ever, organizations must understand and address the security risks threatening their information, their resources and their employees. Companies are struggling to regain control of their systems and resources in order to effectively mount an enterprise-wide security defense. TruSecure and the Yankee Group invite you to hear Adam Joseph and Peter Horst address these security challenges and debate the solutions for securing the enterprise in 2002 and beyond.
“Companies need to understand that the major investment necessary to effectively secure an enterprise is not a commitment of dollars or resources, but a commitment to change behavior,” said Joseph. “Being proactive is the key as it allows companies to take a cost versus risk approach that will maximize the return on investment. The Yankee Group is providing a valuable forum to deliver this message and educate the market on the most effective approaches to managing security risk.”
