Of Interest to Members:
Dark Reading’s INsecurity Conference

(Please note: this event is not an ACFE sponsored event. It is shared as an event that may be of interest to members.)

It’s time to ask some hard questions. Are cybercriminals really ahead of the defenders? Or are there fundamental flaws in the strategies we’re using for defense?

These are among the core questions we’ll be exploring next month at Dark Reading’s INsecurity Conference, which will take place Nov. 29-30 at the Gaylord National Harbor near Washington, D.C. The conference -- which features 32 sessions led primarily by CISOs and former CISOs of major organizations, as well as roundtable discussions and an exhibit floor – is designed to help IT and security professionals rethink the way they approach everyday security tasks, and get them talking about new strategies.
