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 is a place where theory and practice converge.

Attendees are provided an opportunity to take 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. Because of the pedigree of our faculty and the competencies of our security risk management service providers, 90% of our attendees return to their organizations with the tools to move their program forward on a path to value.
