Henry Dalziel | Concise Courses, Information Security Conferences | November 12, 2013

SC Congress Chicago is happening a week from Wednesday, on November 20, 2013, and we’ve got free passes! Yes, you heard right – keep scrolling…!

We report on many information security conferences and events, and some of them really jump-out when it comes to the quality of the content, and SC Congress is one of those!

The November 20th event, which is a Wednesday, will cover the following major – and important – information security themes:

  • Cloud security
  • Insider threats
  • Mobile safeguards
  • Cyber criminals

The November 20th event, which is a Wednesday, will cover the following major – and important – information security themes:

Following up on last year’s inaugural – and successful – SC Congress Chicago, the team behind the SC events is returning with expert guidance on a variety of subjects. But what we particularly like about this event is that practical real-life solutions are discussed.

The main objective of this conference and expo is to offer timely information to assist organizations –big and small, commercial and government – to better defend against cyber criminals. This scourge is clearly expanding in a multitude of different directions, so whatever and however we can defend ourselves and our organizations against these persistent threats is welcome. This conference aims to help with exactly that.

A primary reason why we like SC Congress events is their insistence on offering practical guidance. This gathering in Chicago will offer attendees the opportunity to actually use products and receive hands-on training from top information security professionals and vendors from both the public and private sector.

If you work as a CISO or CTO, you have – or will likely be tasked – with selecting certain products and solutions from vendors to solve current or anticipated security problems. And the fact that you can ‘kick-the-tires’ with vendor products is certainly beneficial.

How to claim your pass!
