SC World Congress: A show is born

The SC World Congress, presented by SC Magazine, gathered the top minds in the industry to share their experiences, advice and insight. Attendees at the event, held last month at the Javits Center in New York, were presented with dozens of information security and IT experts discussing everything from data theft to compliance regulations to establishing partnerships between government and the private sector, and everything in-between. Vendors exhibited the latest solutions, and our colleagues from the SC Lab were on hand with a test bed to demonstrate how products are tested and evaluated for the magazine.

We here at SC Magazine extend a hearty thank you to the sponsors, exhibitors, delegates and attendees for being part of a tremendous inaugural event.
