WHAT: Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) Security Forum 2008: Managing Security And Risk Amid Business And IT Change

Security & Risk professionals walk the tightrope, brought about by constant organizational change. They must regularly balance the business demand for openness and integration against the concerns around data protection, availability, compliance, and oversight.

WHEN: September 4–5, 2008

The Westin Boston Waterfront
425 Summer Street
Boston, MA 02210
+ 617.532.4600
