The Conference has grown as the importance of information security has grown throughout organizations. Infosec professionals are faced with an interesting set of regulations and challenges that make the annual event a must attend one. The stakes have never been higher - a breach harms not only an organization's reputation, but financially as customers look to do business elsewhere or an organization becomes liable for the harm done. When weighing the cost of a breach vs. the cost of honing the skills of infosec professionals to prevent the breach - the choice is clear.
There are quite a few security conferences in the US. What do you see as your strengths? Has your strategic focus changed from previous years?
The Conference continues to reflect or echo the needs of the community. It never is the same event twice! We have an active and engaged community that is very involved with the development of the program, which results in better content, more sophistication in event programming, and a better experience overall. Additionally, the Conference "exists" beyond the one great week in San Francisco - it exists all year long on our community portal.
