Upcoming webinar speaking opportunities: Infosecurity Magazine Spring 2013

I am looking for speakers for the following webinars, for Infosecurity Magazine.

All are for a UK and European audience, except for the US Webinar Week sessions, where we’d prefer US-based speakers.

In each case, we are looking for independent speakers from the analyst, consulting and academic communities. Sadly these presenting slots are not open to vendor executives.

For each panel, we also have space for an end user expert, who can be an IT director, CIO, or IT security specialist. End users can work in any industry sector.

The webinars go out live using Brighttalk, and all start at 1500 London time, unless indicated.

For more information on the content of each session, please drop me an email.


13/03/13 Dealing with advanced threats

Provisional topic outline: How are “advanced threats” affecting the infosecurity landscape, what are the key trends, and how can security teams defend against them?


21/03/13 Next generation vulnerability management

Provisional topic outline: Information security teams and systems are near breaking point. Organisations are being forced to increase their infosecurity spend, but are unclear whether that spend is effective.

As well as adopting a risk reduction strategy, should IT security organisations be looking at unified threat management or next-generation vulnerability management, in order to reduce their risks and contain their security spending?


28/03/13 Virtualisation Security Risks: What Are They and How to Defend Against Them

Virtualization has taken the computer world by storm, lowering costs and significantly speeding up many routine processes.  But has your computer security processes and technologies kept up?

This webinar will discuss virtualization security risks and how organizations can mitigate these risks by developing a strategic approach.


US Webinar Week: w/c 8 April, 2013

Monday: Data Protection and Globalization

Global businesses means complying with international law and regulations – and nowhere is the pressure greater than when it comes to data protection law.

Regulators around the world are taking an increasingly tough line on losses of personal data, but rules are extending to other areas too, such as the safeguarding of intellectual property.

This webinar will look at the international data protection landscape, and what organizations need to do to ensure their data protection regime can meet the sometimes conflicting demands of global trade.

Friday: Future Proofing Your Infosecurity Strategy

As organizations adopt new technologies, they also open up new infosecurity vulnerabilities. The number of these “attack vectors” continues to grow, as industry develops new devices and applications – and as cybercriminals develop new hacks. The popularity of mobile and tablet devices, in particular, poses new risks.

This webinar will look at the rapidly changing nature of security threats, and give infosecurity professionals insights in how to develop processes, policies and tools that are flexible enough to adapt to business change, but also robust enough to protect the organization.
