Mike Rothman, President of Securosis, to Address the Future of Security at Courion CONVERGE Thursday, May 21st

Analyst and Author Brings Irreverent Style to Interactive Discussion of Threat in an Ever-Changing Security Landscape

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - April 07, 2015) - Courion®, the market-leading provider of intelligent identity governance and administration (IGA) solutions, today announced that Mike Rothman, Analyst and President of Securosis, a leading independent information security research and advisory firm, will present "The Future of Security" on Thursday, May 21st at CONVERGE, the company's annual customer conference.

Information security executives, who go to battle daily to maintain security while also providing users with efficient and compliant access to resources, will identify with Mike's fresh, informal perspective. Mike has toiled in the trenches as an IS professional and has seen much as an industry analyst over the past 20 years. He brings a self-described "cynicism about the state of security and what it takes to survive as a security professional" to the conversation around security management and compliance. Mike also authored, "The Pragmatic CSO - 12 Steps to Being a Security Master" an Amazon 4-star rated book, in 2007.

"Mike is uniquely both an entertaining and informed speaker," said Kurt Johnson, Vice President of Corporate Strategy for Courion. "We are excited to have him join our customers at CONVERGE 2015. His no-nonsense approach is welcomed by CISOs."

CONVERGE offers as much as 15 Continuing Professional Education Credits (CPE) toward a CISSP or other professional certification and will take place at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas between Tuesday, May 19th and Thursday, May 21st. By registering before April 30th, attendees can take advantage of a $100.00 discount.

The conference offers a great opportunity for Courion customers to connect with peers, share experiences and learn what's new and coming soon in the Access Assurance Suite and through Courion's collaborations with partners and event sponsors such as IDMWorks, Ping Identity, Lieberman Software, Radiant Logic, SecZetta and Secure Reset.

For security professionals interested in a deep-dive into identity and governance administration, Tuesday, May 19th at CONVERGE has been dubbed 'Tech Tuesday' because it features a full day of technical training and workshops within two tracks, one focused on the blocking and tackling of traditional IAM processes, the second on exploiting identity analytics to better inform provisioning and enable compliance monitoring on a continuous basis so access risk is minimized. A complete agenda and registration is available by visiting www.courion.com/CONVERGE.
