Topic/Title: Infrastructure Consolidation: Understanding the Security Obstacles Moving to Phase 2 Virtualization

More than ever, IT budgets are stretched thin. IT staff are pressured to cut costs, reduce management complexity and save resources, all while facing an increasingly sophisticated threat landscape. The rise of integrated security platforms and virtualization solutions has been a major step forward in addressing some of these problems, but many of these solutions still fail to perform effectively within an integrated multi-application security infrastructure. This presentation will highlight the core obstacles to achieving a consolidated, virtualized security infrastructure, as well as the options available to help network managers simplify delivery of security services, while still meeting their needs for performance, scalability and reliability.

Topic/Title: IT Policy Compliance Management

Before publishing new IT policies for a given organization it is important to ensure they are aligned with relevant laws and regulations for your given industry as well as in accordance with your security posture. When publishing the new IT policies for an organization, communication of the publication is clearly essential. But, most importantly developing a process whereby the company can understand the impact of those new policies to the applications, infrastructure and business is essential. In addition, this process will also lay the foundation for the policy compliance management process going forward. This discussion will center around the overview of the components and how to effectively deploy this process for an organization
