Information security congress to be held in South Africa.

Information Security Forum : 01 November, 2007  (New Product)
Data security threats for 2008 to be the subject of debate at the Information Security World Congress to be held in December in Cape Town.
The Information Security Forum's (ISF) 18th Annual World Congress takes place in Cape Town on 9th-11th December, bringing together over 400 senior security professionals from leading companies and organizations around the world to tackle the security challenges they will face in 2008 and beyond.

The ISF Congress, recognized as the leading information security conference in the world, provides a unique and confidential environment to share knowledge and experiences, as well as hear from industry experts and gain practical advice on current and emerging information security risks.

This year's event boasts an impressive line up of keynote speakers, dealing with a range of important issues from the growth in organized online crime and cybersecurity to the increasing demands of IT governance and global legislation. Other topics under the spotlight during Break-Out Sessions will include mobile security; security tools and techniques; managing risk; culture, awareness and behavior; security strategies and outsourcing. These sessions will be led by senior security professionals and ISF researchers focusing on experiences and lessons learned.

The specially invited and world renowned guest speakers include: Professor Mervyn King, Chairman of the Brait Société Anonyme and of the King Committee on corporate governance in South Africa; Wolfgang Grulke, author, futurist and CEO of FutureWorld International; Ira Winkler, President of the Internet Security Advisors Group; Mikko Hyppönen, Chief Research Officer for F-Secure; Stuart McIrvine, Director of Corporate Security Strategy at IBM; and Reggie Butler, Senior Consultant and Master Facilitator for Global Lead Management Consulting. The event will be chaired by the BBC royal and diplomatic editor, Nicholas Witchell.

'Attendance at the ISF Annual Congress has grown year on year, reflecting the increasing threats and challenges facing security professionals around the world,' said Kim Aarenstrup, Chairman of the ISF and Group Head of Information Security at the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group. 'Unlike other IT security events and conferences, the ISF Annual Congress provides a unique opportunity to meet, listen, debate and gain practical advice in a peer-to-peer, confidential environment.'

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 international association of over 300 leading international organizations including half of the Fortune 100, which fund and co-operate in the development of practical, business driven solutions to information security and Risk Management problems. The ISF undertakes a leading-edge research program and has invested more than US$100 million to create a library of over 200 authoritative reports along with information risk methodologies and tools that are available free of charge to ISF Members.

In addition, its latest Standard of Good Practice for Information Security has recently been published and is available free to non-members
