“The aim of CRESTCon & IISP Congress is to harness the best industry knowledge and experience to address the most critical information security threats and challenges facing businesses and government today,” said Ian Glover president of CREST. “I am delighted to be able to announce our agenda this year, which provides a good mix of top-level information security professionals to share their considerable knowledge and experience of working on the front line.”
“The IISP and CREST share the common goal of further professionalising the Information Security industry,” explains Amanda Finch, General Manager at the IISP. “By joining forces to deliver this event we are giving delegates the unique opportunity to learn from and network with both business and technical professionals in information security. ”
Aimed at security professionals and industry experts concerned with governance and risk and interested in best practice, tools and techniques, attendance is open to members of IISP and CREST, as well as to delegates from the wider information security community. The conference has two speaker tracks: Stream 1 is aimed at security consultants, researchers and those on the front line ethically attacking and/or defending information systems, while Stream 2 is aimed at a wide cross-section of information security professionals, especially those involved in security management, risk and compliance and will include sessions on career development.
Presentations range from ‘Exploiting hardware management subsystems’ and ‘Cyber Threats – intrusion war stories from the front lines’ on stream 1, through to ‘What defines the security profession?’ and ‘The skills deficit – is it real?’ on stream 2.
