Ron Gula, co-founder and CEO of Tenable, will keynote the Rochester Security Summit 2008. Mr. Gula's presentation is titled "Winning the Compliance Game."
Mr. Gula will discuss how configuration management should positively impact your overall security, compliance and monitoring processes. Standards such as PCI, FDCC, CIS and others will be compared and contrasted. Mr. Gula will provide multiple real-world examples that illustrate how the process of configuration management can increase the efficiency of your IT staff, make you compliant and reduce your exposure to data loss.
The Rochester Security Summit is a community focal point for education and awareness in collaboration with higher education, business and industry partners, held during National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
