TRISC Kicks Off

Texas Infrastructure Security Conference kicks off this week

AUSTIN, Texas -- Leading security experts and working and management security professionals from across the South will gather once again in Austin for the third annual Texas Regional Infrastructure Security Conference (TRISC). The conference, to be held May 15 through 17 at the Hilton Austin Airport Hotel, will explore how to protect information from implementing clear strategies for securing wireless communications to protecting information on mobile computers

Approximately 500 attendees, representing some of the country's leading application developers, auditors, compliance officers, contingency planners, database administrators, facility managers, IT and physical security professionals and systems and network administrators, are expected to attend. The conference will kick off with a invitation only Security Executive Forum for CISOs, CSOs and Directors of Security and will then officially begin on Tuesday, May 15 with an opening session keynote and breakout sessions in compliance / audit, physical security, infrastructure, information security, forensics and SCADA security. The conference will conclude on Thursday, May 17 with breakouts and workshops on certification.

The 2007 TRISC theme, "Beyond Convergence" was developed from the recognition that after the data and phone networks, business and SCADA networks and the physical and information security systems and/or organizations converge, the security and audit functions must manage the infrastructure, and regulatory and compliance requirements must be met in order to protect the assets of the organization, which includes personal safety and data, intellectual property and physical assets.

"The success of this year's TRISC is in its ability to reach across people, processes and technology to help us prevent, detect, respond to and recover from any type of security incident," said Vern Williams, CISSP CBCP, TRISC
