WHAT: Forrester Research, Inc., (Nasdaq: FORR) Security Forum 2010: Building The High-Performance Security Organization

As the global economy recovers in 2010, many companies are looking for a way to transform the security organization from a silo of technical expertise into a business partner focused on proactive information risk management. But, with the rapidly changing threat landscape, adoption of cloud services, and increasing use of social media, Security & Risk professionals must perform their tactical and technical responsibilities while focusing on the long-term strategic objectives of the business.

Now is the time for the security organization to evolve from a reactive state, capable of predicting and preparing for the next threat or IT innovation, to become a business partner and enabler, not a roadblock to business initiatives and productivity. Forrester’s Security Forum 2010 will help Security & Risk professionals evaluate the maturity and effectiveness of the security organization while laying out a road map for architectural optimization and innovation and ensuring that the right skills, incentives, and metrics are in place for the long-term success of the security program.

WHEN: September 16-17, 2010

WHERE: The Westin Copley Place, Boston

10 Huntington Ave.

Boston, MA 02116
