(ISC)² SecureFrance 2016 Puts Focus on Securing the Virtual Organization

Crucial information sharing opportunity for France’s professionals  

      Paris, May 31 2016 –  The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the impact the Internet of Things is having on access management are among the current concerns up for debate as France’s information security community comes together for SecureFrance on June 22nd.  This one-day conference from (ISC)2, a nonprofit membership body of certified cyber, information, software and infrastructure security professionals worldwide with over 120,000 members worldwide, is being developed with the support of the (ISC)² Paris Chapterand other industry bodies, including OWASP and the Cloud Security Alliance. The conference will review the latest security concerns for those grappling with the challenge of “Securing the Virtual Organization” and serves to bring practitioners from all levels of practice together in a forum for sharing insights and experience.          

This is the third time that an (ISC)2 Secure event has been hosted in France. This year’s agenda focuses on challenges posed by fast-changing IT architectures as organizations embrace both the cloud and digital innovation to examine developing expectations for managing data, access, identities, software and compliance.

“Our digital footprint is expanding at a phenomenal rate. It is crucial to provide the opportunity for front-line professionals to come together and learn from their peers so that we can develop and share a broad and comprehensive understanding of how to manage the associated risks,” says Vincent Rochette, Conference Chair and President, (ISC)² Paris Chapter. “Recognizing that professionals are not able to shoulder the responsibility on their own, delegates gain insight on both the management and technical knowhow that allows them to manage expectations and accountability across their organizations.”
