ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Apr 10, 2012) - Executive Alliance, creator and provider of a national network of programs for senior IT executives across different industries, announced today the keynote speaker for the Security Leaders' Summit Northeast 2012, which will be held on April 24, 2012, in New York City at the Roosevelt Hotel.

Focused on key areas to support the "Security Agenda" of enabling organizations to achieve a competitive edge and long-term profitability while ensuring protection of the assets, the Keynote speaker is Mark Clancy, Chief Information Security Officer with The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation. With responsibilities including the oversight of Information Security, Business Continuity and Information Technology Risk Management for DTCC, Mr. Clancy will provide his viewpoint on the security landscape, where he sees issues the industry needs to focus on, where he believes successes will be found, and actions needed for the future to ensure security organizations keep pace with business needs.

"We need to continuously keep our focus on reducing risk for our firms and, at the same time measure our success," Clancy said. "It's a never-ending quest, and I welcome the opportunity to share with my industry colleagues some of the challenges we have faced at DTCC and gain their own critical perspectives. I firmly believe that the more we communicate our experiences, the better our safeguards will be in the long run."

In addition to the keynote, Summit sessions include interviews, panel discussions and group discussions. Security topics of focus are mobility, network, cloud, virtualization, compliance, and big data. The one-day Summit provides attendees the opportunity for industry leaders to collaborate, share best practices, and challenge their thinking.

"Today, enterprises are faced with an ever-accelerating enterprise risk envelope due to the proliferation of users, devices and applications inherent in today's complex networks -- this is especially true here among the world's most influential financial services firms," said Parveen Jain, President and CEO of RedSeal Networks. "With the need to continuously monitor compliance and secure critical data, enterprises are confronted with the classic need to fortify their networks while satisfying their auditors. RedSeal is at the innovation forefront and provides an entirely new level of visibility that allows enterprises to better visualize critical vulnerabilities, attack paths and compliance violations. We are excited to be participating in the Security Leaders' Summit in New York with the industry's top thought leaders, many of which are customers."
