StillSecure Security Expert Jack Callaghan to present at this year’s ISACA Conference

StillSecure’s resident security expert Jack Callaghan has been invited again this year as a presenter at ISACA’s North America Information Security and Risk Management (ISR M) and IT Governance Risk and Compliance Conference (IT GR C) taking place November 14-16 in Las Vegas.  The world-class event is designed to help address the issues and concerns of information security, governance, compliance and risk management professionals.

Callaghan will leverage his security and compliance expertise to discuss the current threat landscape. He’ll explore why understanding where data lives and how it is protected have become essential to successfully protecting an organization’s most critical assets.

Jack, along with 3 other industry experts will be part of Track 5: IT Risk and Exposure Management Solutions panel, entitled, “Industrial Control Systems with Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (ICS/SCADA) Panel:  Discussion on Your Enterprise’s Preparedness and Ability to Mitigate Risk on Nov. 14, from 3:45 – 5:00 p.m.

The panel will examine a SCADA-related incident and its affects across individual, enterprise, and governmental boundaries.  Working with attendees the experts will examine operational impacts, levels of preparedness, readiness to mitigate, and the response of organizations.  During the panel the practical ability for all participants to utilize, manage and secure their data assets will be reviewed, focusing on the practical steps toward continuity under such adverse conditions.

As a regular attendee and presenter at ISACA events for more than 10 years, Jack sees participation as invaluable to working effectively within the security community.  According to Jack, “The exchange of experience and discoveries generates crucial insights to a rapidly changing landscape of threats and exploits. There’s no magic bullet, only knowledge and vigilance.  Data is today’s coin-of-the-realm, theft is eternal, only the ‘tech’ changes.”

Jack will also be presenting two sessions:
