Information security to be a hot topic at Interop Las Vegas 2016

Information security will be a hot topic at Interop Las Vegas 2016, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, US from 2-6 May.

Interop will highlight best practices to protect networks and critical data, while hands-on workshops will showcase how attendees can mitigate more sophisticated cyber threats and respond effectively when their organisation is compromised. The event will also address the changing needs of security as enterprise infrastructure expands across the cloud, the internet of things and the digital economy.

“The threat of a breach has become one of the largest, yet least predictable, risks that an enterprise faces,” said Tim Wilson, Interop Security Track chair, and co-founder and editor-in-chief of Dark Reading. “At Interop, we will be offering attendees a chance to learn and interact with some of IT security’s top experts and learn what they can do to minimise that risk and mitigate some of the industry's most current threats.”

On 2 May, delegates will be able to participate in an interactive hacking workshop led by John Sawyer, senior security analyst at InGuardians. During the session, attendees will be able to try a virtual machine pre-loaded with offensive security tools to learn the practical skills they need to adopt penetration testing and defend their enterprise against intruders.

Alternatively, delegates can attend a two-day Dark Reading Cyber Security Summit (2-3 May) to learn more about assessing risk, minimising the security impact of mobile devices in the enterprise, making cloud services safe, preventing internal data leaks and responding to breaches. The session will be led by Tim Wilson.
