The SC World Congress Conference and Expo, scheduled for Oct. 13-14 in New York, has added two new featured speakers.

Art Coviello, president of RSA, The Security Division of EMC, and Joel McFarland, senior manager of product management at Cisco, will be focusing on trends driving organizations' rapid movement to the cloud, and the implications for security professionals. In addition, each of the presenters plans to provide perspective on the current state of enterprise and network security.

In his discussion, Coviello will address how companies are rushing to deploy new technologies that results in a “hyper-extended enterprise” exchanging more information in more ways and with more constituencies than ever before. He will also outline the key components of a secure information infrastructure and its benefits in managing risk.

In his session, McFarland will guide participants on an exploration into the cloud, revealing the power of choice in email security, and discuss how to harness the benefits of the cloud, while avoiding common pitfalls typical of early software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions.
