IT Execs Headed to Mobile Security Exchange in Phoenix

Mobile security executives from various verticals, including government, financial services, and education are heading to Phoenix, Arizona this April to attend the Enterprise Mobility Exchange: Security West event, where CIOs, CISOs, VPs, and Heads of IT will join for a two-day information-sharing and benchmarking business meeting.

The Exchange will focus on mobile security, corporate data protection, threat defense and detection, breach recovery, and the legal ramifications of a hack. Featured speakers, Think Tanks, and Round Tables will be mixed with one-on-one networking opportunities with on-site solution providers.

"Regardless of whether sanctioned or supported by IT, employees are accessing corporate data via an increasing number of mobile devices,” said Dorene Rettas, Head of US at Enterprise Mobility Exchange. “Enterprises that are not securing every endpoint are leaving themselves vulnerable to a breach. Enterprise Mobility Exchange: Security West looks beyond network security to focus on all endpoints from smartphones to tablets and wearables, looking at current and future threats."

Security West, held April 24 and 25, will feature opening keynote speaker Nick Savage, Assistant Acting Special Agent in Charge of Cybersecurity for the FBI, as well as Jamal Hartenstein, Data Privacy and Cyber Security attorney. Savage will take a look at defending the attack surface, establishing an effective defense and implementing an information assurance framework to secure the enterprise’s endpoints. The legal aspect of a breach will be tackled, as Hartenstein addresses who’s liable when it comes to security issues.

Virginia Tech University CISO Randy Marchany will address securing the entire mobile world, as well as join a panel on the topic of BYOD in the enterprise. Derek Wheeler, the Assistant Director of Cybersecurity for the State of Maryland will also speak on how to secure tens of thousands of mobile devices across his public enterprise.
