Security and regulatory compliance is no longer the exclusive job of defensive technologies. For organisations, it is a continuous juggling act: it just doesn’t stand still. Managing people, systems and processes requires a holistic and not always technical approach, that covers a seamless delivery of ‘defence in depth’ in an ever converging environment.

On Thursday January 20th 2011 you will have the opportunity to meet the women working in Information Assurance who are tasked with delivering good governance every day.  Learn about what their key  job entails, their strategies for survival in a predominantly male environment and how their employers manage not only to “catch them” but to “keep them”.

  • Delivering security at the first layer
  • Governance, Data Protection and Privacy
  • Information security: many messages, one voice
  • Information Security: Enabling your business to take baby steps towards security

As the first BCS women’s event in Kent, this is a unique opportunity for our local members to meet, network and exchange ideas with other women.

For information security professionals, we offer an exciting panel of speakers who are able to share their experiences and ideas in an informal environment.
