Series Spanned Three Continents, Addressing Top Information Security Challenges

Princeton, N.J. December 6, 2016

Information Security Media Group, the leading media provider to the information security community, completed its 2016 global series of Summits. Summits were held in the Americas, EMEA and AsiaPac, providing senior security professionals with insight into the most pressing security threats facing organizations, including topics such as insider threats, credential hijacking and ransomware attacks.

Tom Field, vice president of editorial at ISMG, who had oversight on all content for events in 2016, said, “The information security community benefited greatly from the strength of our presenters, ranging from former RSA head Art Coviello, who discussed how organizations can overcome and harness the dizzying array of technological innovation in terms of attacks, as well as solutions, to Global Cyber Alliance CEO Phil Reitinger’s discussion about how organizations can improve this risk management posture, ” Field said. “I feel confident in saying that we stand alone when it comes to the level and breadth of content our Summits offered.”

“Throughout the years I’ve had the opportunity to partner with ISMG on several events, as well as help the editorial team gain insight into several important cybersecurity matters that has then been reflected in their various media properties,” Coviello said. “It’s always an honor to participate with them, and I look forward to seeing what ISMG has in store for 2017.”

ISMG Summits focused on two primary topic areas: fraud and breach prevention across all major industry verticals. There were also several Summits focusing on security issues specific to the public sector, as well as ISMG’s annual Healthcare Security Summit in New York on Nov. 1 and 2.

All sessions and video interviews of Summit subject matter experts conducted on site by the ISMG editorial team have been added to ISMG’s content library. The sessions may be viewed by ISMG Premium members for CPE credit.

In addition, ISMG Summits’ close to 100 sponsors provided subject matter experts from their organizations to host sessions on such topics as business email compromise and spear-phishing attacks, improving credentials management, and medical device management. ISMG partners, such as PCI Security Standards Council and Information Security Forum, also led sessions on ramifications of the payments revolution and the emerging threat landscape.    

ISMG recently announced its 2017 Summit schedule, which includes North American Summits in Atlanta, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Chicago, New York and Toronto, and summits taking place in EMEA and AsiaPac, including Sydney, Dubai, London, Singapore, Mumbai, Bangalore and New Delhi.
