(ISC)2® and ASIS International to Co-Locate Annual Events

February 24, 2011

(ISC)2 will co-locate its first annual (ISC)² Security Congress with the ASIS International 57th Annual Seminar and Exhibits in Orlando, FL, Sept. 19-22, 2011.

The decision to present a co-located conference and exhibition event evolved out of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed in late 2010 by the two global organizations. By way of the MOU, both organizations seek to advance the total security landscape and the convergence of traditional and logical security by leveraging their individual capacities and abilities—ultimately further enhancing the value of membership for both bodies.

ASIS certification reviews will be offered Sept. 16-17 for the Certified Protection Professional (CPP), Professional Certified Investigator (PCI), and Physical Security Professional (PSP) examinations. On Sept. 17-18, a series of (ISC)2 credential clinics are scheduled (CISSP®, CSSLP®, CAP®, and SSCP®), as well as an official two-day review seminar for both CSSLP and CISSP. 

“This agreement reflects the rapidly evolving, converging roles of the information security and traditional security professionals within the global business marketplace,” says ASIS President Raymond T. O’Hara, CPP. “By strategically aligning our organizational resources, our combined memberships of more than 100,000 professionals gain access to core knowledge and best practices across the full spectrum of information and traditional security. The opportunity to connect with one’s security counterpart and to build a solid practitioner network is one of the most valuable benefits to be derived from this relationship.”

“It is ever so clear that the certification and education bodies must work together to better serve this growing security profession,” said W. Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, CNSS, executive director of (ISC)2. “Our goal in working with ASIS is to develop high-quality programs for the broader security community that will further develop a workforce whose skills are in great demand.”

In addition to the cross-promotion of each organization’s respective professional certifications, ASIS and (ISC)2 will engage in shared educational programming, develop research, and work co-operatively on legislative issues of mutual interest.

Virtualization and Data Center Security: What You Need to Know for 2014

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
