Mission Possible: IT Security Best Practices For The Midmarket
The IT professionals charged with leading their organization’s IT security strategy know they will never have enough budget or staff to ward off the biggest threats to their data assets. Given the heightened state of alert, business leaders think they may need the latest security technology in order to protect the company’s network and assets from sophisticated attacks. However, what IT security leaders really need to do is go back to basics and put into place security best practices that not only minimize business risk, but enable business success. For those professionals who must now demonstrate accountability to the Board and senior leaders, they need a practical IT security playbook that focuses not only the fundamentals, but also the right mix of partners and tech suppliers.
MES IT Security Summit is designed for IT Professionals who influence and recommend security strategies and set priorities for midsize organizations. These professionals are responsible for recommending vendors, partners, tech suppliers, outsourcing services in key areas and building their organization’s security strategy and practices.
