Session Description: Virtually every week now brings with it a new headline for "Largest Breach Ever".  Yet according to Gartner, Information Security spending increased 20% in 2013, almost 10% in 2014, and is expected to set records again in 2015.  With ever-increasing resources being spent on security, executive management continues to ask, "why do breaches keep happening?"  At the core, many of the investments our companies are making in security may be focusing on the wrong things, and missing the opportunity to implement low-cost but high-impact security controls that would meaningfully reduce the likelihood of breaches.  We invite you to come explore some recent breaches with us and join the discussion on some obvious places where companies missed the boat on what was most important. 

Date/Time: December 15, 2015, from 11:00am to 1:00pm (lunch to be provided). The presentation will start promptly at 11:30AM.
