Free Event on 19 July Brings Experts to Your Desktop
Rolling Meadows, IL, USA (27 June 2012)—Increasingly, enterprises are embracing the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) phenomenon to support growing mobile workforces and increase productivity. ISACA’s latest virtual conference will help enterprises ensure safe, productive business use of mobile devices and understand mobile application ecosystems, mobile security threats and corresponding business risks. The conference also will address privacy and security challenges of BYOD under the EU privacy and data protection legislation.
ISACA, a global association of 100,000 IT professionals, will provide guidance on keeping IT running securely in the face of our mobile society at the event titled Mobile Security Imperatives 2012 on Thursday, 19 July 2012, from 7:45 a.m.–4:30 p.m. EDT (UTC-4). Attendees will learn from industry specialists and network with peers from around the world, all without leaving their desks.
“The variety of devices and platforms and the modern workforce’s desire for constant connectivity have created increased security concerns and make the implementation and management of a truly mobile enterprise very challenging,” said Greg Grocholski, CISA, international president of ISACA and chief audit executive at Dow Chemical. “This conference will provide proven approaches and guidance, and will specifically address EU legislation that must be considered.”
During live Q&A sessions at the virtual conference, attendees can interact directly with global leaders in the industry who will present sessions including:
- Understanding Bring-Your-Own-Device Legal Issues Under European Privacy and Data Protection Law, presented by Johan Vandendriessche, Independent Technology and Privacy Lawyer
