Today's security executives are required to perform difficult and constant balancing acts between the art and science of security, continuously weighed against the needs of the business. Getting the 'science' part of the equation right is the easier part. There are quantitative measurements around such issues as intrusion detection, forensics and regulatory compliance, along with more mature attempts to quantify the ROI of security.

Speakers include the Centre's executive director David Vaile; Rob Goldberg, KPMG Risk Advisory Services; Matt Dircks, VP of Security Management, NetIQ; and David Boyles, CXO Technology Advisory Pty Ltd.


Attendance is free but is limited to CIOs, IT Directors, senior IT professionals, CEOs, Managing Directors and CFOs.
