Title:    It's Not the Hacker You Have to Worry About: The Rise in Insider
          Data Security Breach

Overview: Chances are your company has considered securing your data from
          outsiders, but what about protecting your data from your
          employees? Insider security breaches are on the rise. Some
          reports estimate that 69% of security breaches are a result of
          insider errors. We're not talking about jilted ex-employees; most
          of these incidents are non-malicious in nature, representing
          carelessness or accidental breaches. Learn what you can do to
          keep your company protected from the inside out. By the end of
          this session, attendees will understand:
              --  How to protect data from outsiders and insiders;
              --  How to recognize and address potential threats to data;
              --  How to prevent inadvertant employee breaches.

When:     Wednesday, April 2, 2008, 2:00 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.


Title:    Securing Data: Moving from Defense to Offense

Overview: Sensitive data resides in hundreds of places and in many
          different forms throughout an organization. Securing all
          information whether in transport or while being stored may seem a
          little excessive, but as hackers become more sophisticated and
          internal breaches by employees become more frequent, it's just
          common sense.

          This session describes how to beat the odds in today's business
          environment by adopting best practices which secure, encrypt and
          transport personal data for the benefit of all. Business today is
          compliance-driven, competitive and increasingly fraught with
          crimes of opportunity from financially motivated hackers and
          frustrated employees. Employees who learn to go on the offensive
          will reduce exposure to security breaches -- mitigating the risk
          of fraud losses, penalties, operational and legal expenses that
          can result from information security incidents. By the end of
          this session, attendees will be able to:
              --  Proactively protect and secure data;
              --  Reduce exposure to security breaches; and
              --  Mitigate the risk of loss.

When:     Wednesday, April 2, 2008, 5:00 p.m. - 6:15 p.m.
