Risk mitigation to be examined at SC World Congress

Everyone thinks their industry, their company, their division is different, but risk has more commonalities than most people believe.

Dave Cullinane, CISO, eBay, will be one of the panel members at the SC World Congress discussing similarities and differences in risk mitigation.

“Effective management of information security risk is essential to protecting one of your organization's most critical assets – information,” he says.

The moderator is Illena Armstrong, editor-in-chief, SC Magazine.

The session will explore best practices in mapping risk, regardless of your company or business division size, global footprint or revenue.
