Set Your IT Security Priorities Straight

Register today as our guest (Toronto session, Thursday, November 18th)

Please join us on Thursday, November 18th for a half day seminar at the Events at On the Park Oak Room, 1095 Leslie Street in Toronto on the topic of: "Set Your IT Security Priorities Straight."

The session, sponsored by IBM, in partnership with CATAAlliance and ITWorld Canada will provide in understanding the most critical security vulnerabilities facing enterprise IT in Canada today, along with practical approaches to dealing with both internal and external threats.

Out of more than 12,000 business and technology executives we have surveyed worldwide, 67 per cent place an emphasis on security procedures that help their organizations minimize risk. The problem is, they often must make do with targeted spending on technology and bring in outside security expertise to manage the areas their IT staff can't. That's why choosing the right areas for security spending and resources may be an IT executive's most important skill set.
