Vancouver will host this year's Information Security Forum in early November where experts will discuss strategies for handling the latest and emerging security threats
Some 500 senior information risk and security professionals from the world's leading companies and organizations will be converging on Vancouver, Canada for the 20th Information Security Forum (ISF) Annual World Congress from 1st - 3rd November 2009. In addition to presentations from leading industry experts on key information security issues, the event will also provide a unique opportunity for delegates to participate in a panel discussion with experts who deal with real world cybercrime threats and will share their own experiences and strategies for dealing with cyber-emergencies.

Recognized as the world's leading information security conference, this year's ISF Congress boasts an impressive line up of keynote speakers, including Shawn Henry, FBI Assistant Director of the Cyber Division; Scott Charney, Microsoft's Corporate VP for Trustworthy Computing, Engineering Excellence and Environmental Sustainability; and Esther Dyson of EDventure Holdings and leading commentator on the digital world and role of the Internet.

The cybercrime panel includes Bernhard Otupal, Assistant Director, Financial and Hi-tech Crime Sub-Directorate of INTERPOL; Alexander Seger, Head of Economic Crime Division for the Council of Europe; and Mark Zwillinger, a Partner and Chair of Internet, Communications and Data Protection at legal practice, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal.

Taking part on the Guru panel to debate key information security issues from delegates, will be Mary Anne Davidson, Chief Security Officer at Oracle; Gregory Garcia, President at Garcia Strategies; and Bruce Schneier, Chief Security Officer at BT. Alexander Seger will also be joining this panel.

ISF President, Prof Howard Schmidt, whose previous roles include Special Advisor for Cyberspace Security to the White House, Chief Security strategist at eBay and Chief Security Officer for Microsoft Corp., is chairing the Cyber-response and Guru panels.

"Now in its 20th year, the ISF Annual World Congress has once again attracted some of the world's leading and most respected industry experts and gives ISF members the opportunity to come together to discuss and debate the key information security issues," said Howard Schmidt. "With budgets still under pressure and increasing threats, the ISF Annual Congress provides the ideal forum for information risk and security professionals to share their experiences and knowledge in order to stay one step ahead."

In addition to the key presentations and sessions, delegates will have the opportunity to attend some 50 Breakout and Academy sessions over the four days, on issues from network convergence, third party relationships and managing the end user experience, to cloud computing, information Risk Management and the threat horizon.

Attendance at the Annual Congress is exclusive to ISF Members and is one of the benefits of ISF membership. The ISF is a not-for-profit, association of some 300 leading international companies and organizations, which fund and co-operate in the development of practical, business driven solutions to information security and Risk Management problems. The ISF undertakes leading-edge research and has invested more than US$100 million to create a library of over 400 authoritative reports along with information risk methodologies and tools.
