Security Risk Management in 2017

The Risks, The Challenges, and The Opportunities



A Forum Around the Drivers of Risk, Resilience, and the Business of Security

The Great Conversation provides you and your team with proven practices and strategies

to create valuable security and risk programs to drive your business 



The Great Conversation is a forum designed to inform, engage, and ultimately provide attendees with the tools needed to take security programs to the next level. It is intended for practitioners focused on enterprise-wide security, risk management, business continuity, and critical infrastructure.

It's a place where theory and practice converge

We invite you to a powerful two-day education forum focused on both the challenges and opportunities organizations face in risk, resilience, and the business value of security. We bring together leaders and their teams to discuss the newest and most important strategies driving the security industry and hear how other companies have organized their people, processes, and technology against a program roadmap.

Our faculty present proven practices and strategies you need to maintain the value of security and risk programs to support your organization and drive enterprise success.  Attendees also have access to current and emerging technology and service providers where we help you develop a scorecard for that technology to meet your unique needs.


"I've attended the two day Forum in Seattle for several years and I credit much of my professional success to the relationships I've established and knowledge I have gained through my participation.  I value it so much that I brought my newly formed team to forum. My intent was to give them access to the same people, material, and resources I learn from. I want them to hear what I preach from the source, to increase their understanding, and help us align our individual business philosophies – laying the foundation for a shared vision. I want to expand their awareness of our profession so they see the possibilities available to them as they become next generation security leaders." 

– Mike Dorman, Bellevue School District


“The Great Conversation provides a setting in which the various members of the security community are exposed to information and ideas related to the mitigation of risk and is designed to engender productive discussions regarding what the future of security will look like both from an operational and technological standpoint. This forum is an invaluable resource for any organization's continued and future success.”

– Rich Lily, Kohler and Company
