RSA Preview (Panel)- All-Star Panel Kick’s Off Professional Development Program

January 14, 2011

The professional development seminar kicks off with an all-star panel of information security leaders discussing the current landscape of the information security marketplace.  Moderated by seminar co-host, Mike Gentile, the panel will explore industry trends that are affecting both the supply and the demand for information security professionals.  The panel will discuss some of the career development challenges that face information security professionals as they attempt to climb their personal career ladders to attain their personal career goals.

The panel’s unique composition will provide perspectives that reflect challenges on the different components of the industry – internal information security programs, government and public sector information security programs, professional services, information security software industry and the maturing “hacker” community.   The panel will discuss topics that include the role of certifications, the different perspectives of employers and perspective employees, and the challenges that face security professionals as they attempt to broaden their skills to gain greater acceptance by business leaders and executive management.

We were very fortunate to attract a panel of influential information security leaders including:

Kevin Richards,  President, ISSA International and VP of Services at Neohapsis

Jeff Moss, Founder of Black Hat and DEF CON, and Homeland Security Advisory Council Member

Michael Assante, President and CEO, National Board of Information Security Examiners

Chris Chock, Security Lead, Orange County Transportation Authority
