Instructions to The Westin South Coast Plaza Hotel
Security has without any
doubt become far more important, and more complicated, in the
last few years than anyone would have thought possible a decade ago. We now
have a Department of Homeland Security and every where you look people are requesting assurances that
their personal security and
the security of the places they work and play in are state-of-the-art.
Information Security is
now absolutely paramount, not just in the eyes of top management looking to insure the
protection of information; but also to employees, suppliers and customers
alike, as we have learned more and more about identity theft, hackers,
intellectual property violations and such things as worms and viruses.
We are also facing some challenging legal situations as such things affect
privacy rights, HIPPA, safety, stock values and shareholder interests.
So how do you assure the
powers-that-be that what you have done is state of the art, recognized best
practices, etc. Come to that, how do you gain budget approval to enact
suitable steps to protect your organization's information?
Responsibility without authority we all know is a farce, but if you cannot
expend the time and capital necessary to obtain security, how can you be held
responsible if something fails? It seems to
us that an organization-wide and independent information security audit is going to become as
necessary to the CTO as a financial audit has been to a CFO for a long time now.
To this end we have asked one
of the nation's leading experts in Risk Management and Information Systems
consulting to provide us with a venue where senior IT and Security
professionals could discuss the latest thinking in this field.
There is of course no cost and no obligation
whatsoever placed upon
guests by attending and even their valet parking will be paid.
