REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) - Actiance, the leader in compliance, security, archiving and eDiscovery for all critical business communications, today unveiled a conference preview and highlights for the company's upcoming Unleash Summit 2015 user conference, June 11-12 in New York City. With a keynote address by former SEC Chair (2009-2012) Mary Schapiro and sponsorship from top technology partners, Unleash is the ideal backdrop to showcase a new era in communications compliance and archiving/eDiscovery.

This year's Summit focuses on the challenges executives from regulated industries face as a result of growing regulatory compliance requirements and the rapidly changing communications landscape in the enterprise.

Major attractions include:

  • Keynote speeches: Mary Schapiro, the first female Chair of the SEC (2009 - 2012), will address topics such as compliance, the multiplicity of trading venues, big data initiatives such as CAT, and the future of financial regulations. Carl Reed, Chief Information Architect, Credit Suisse, will discuss big data approaches to mitigate risk, address regulatory compliance, and drive business.
  • Panel Discussions: Owen Donley, Chief Counsel of the SEC, Office of Investor Education and Advocacy, will address the intersection of social communications and compliance, and Actiance VP of Product Management Scott Whitney and executives from LinkedIn, Cisco and Credit Suisse, will explore how compliance effects new social channels within the enterprise.
  • Product Innovation: Actiance CEO, Kailash Ambwani, will give an advance preview of groundbreaking new products and technologies that create a new era in compliance, analytics and federated communities.
  • Partner Showcase: Leading providers of enterprise applications and technologies will highlight their new offerings and demos.
  • Birds of a Feather: Actiance's social team and social media thought leaders from many of Actiance's clients will share the good, the bad, and the ugly about their social media programs in the judgement free zone that is Unleash.

"Unleash attracts an elite lineup of financial services companies and it's exciting to see Actiance continue to build one of the industry's fastest-growing, most innovative user forums," said Kailash Ambwani, CEO, Actiance. "The remarkable convergence of new ideas and advanced technology solutions, and a keynote from SEC luminary Mary Schapiro, combined with the networking of customers, partners and Actiance employees all under one roof, is invaluable to our community.
