SC Magazine Strengthens Commitment to Canadian Information Security with Inaugural SC Congress Canada

New Event Features Expected to be Canada's Largest IT Security Show - Canada's Leading Security Experts Weigh In November 16-17, 2010

Toronto (PRWEB) June 29, 2010 -- Today, SC Magazine announced the SC Congress Canada, the newest venue for information security industry leaders to convene and discuss lessons learned and best practices to help organizations address the burgeoning landscape of security threats and regulatory mandates. Public registration will soon open for the SC Congress Canada taking place in Toronto on November 16-17, 2010.

Leveraging the pattern of success of the past two SC World Congress events held in New York each year, SC Congress Canada will feature in-depth analysis of the latest security threats, industry trends and drivers that contribute to the overall profitability of organizations, all localized to the Canadian audience. The new event is being supported by numerous Canadian information security executives including the following confirmed keynote speakers:

  • Canada's Privacy Laws - Leading the Pack: Jennifer Stoddart, Canadian Privacy Commissioner
  • Since taking on the role as commission in 2003, Commissioner Stoddart has overseen a number of important investigations, including those concerning the privacy policies and practices of the popular social networking site Facebook and a massive data breach at U.S. retail giant TJX. In her keynote, Commissioner Stoddart will provide insight and detail as to how and why the plethora of news around privacy and Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada benefits organizations, individuals and Canada.
  • Securing North Americas Power Grid: Dr. Ann Cavoukian, Ontario Information and Privacy Commissioner; Scott D. Swartz, Energy Infrastructure and Cyber Security Advisor, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)
  • This keynote will look at the latest threats and attack vectors as well as major privacy concerns regarding the North American Power Grid. The session will focus on why this security is critical, why you need to know and how you can help.
  • Canada's Health Sector Cracks Down on Removable Media with Encryption Laws: Dr. Ann Cavoukian, Ontario Information and Privacy Commissioner

In this feature keynote, Commissioner Cavoukian addresses Canada's recent crackdown on removable media with encryption laws. While a 2007 health order required sensitive health information to be encrypted, portable drives continue to walk out the door with private information. In this keynote, Cavoukian addresses the issue and questions why, as an industry, we are slow to learn the threat portable media poses to managing private information.

More keynotes will be announced in the coming weeks. In addition to the keynotes from two of Canada's information security authorities, there will be high-quality breakout sessions led by other leading organizations in the following three tracks: Emerging Threats/Management, Technical, and Editor's Choice. SC Congress Canada attendees will learn about trends affecting mobile banking, securing the North American power grid and Canadian Health sector privacy laws, among other timely and relevant security topics, all lead by Canadian subject matter experts.

"For the past two years, the SC World Congress events have had tremendous success and engaged many of North America's security experts - helping educate security professionals on the current threat landscape and how to protect businesses and consumers from existing and emerging threats," said Illena Armstrong, editor-in-chief, SC Magazine. "We are excited to take that success and provide a more concentrated focus on Canadian information security. With an agenda packed with best practices from industry leaders, we are confident this event will be challenging and thought-provoking and will deliver solutions and discussions designed to help take the lead against today's cybercriminals."

"IBM's Platinum Sponsorship of the SC Congress event in Canada demonstrates a global commitment to improving risk management in the areas of Security and Business Resiliency across all industries and organizations," said William Wong, Market Segment Manager-Managing Risk Program, IBM Security Solutions and Business Continuity & Resiliency Services.
IBM joins fellow Platinum sponsors, Fortinet, Panda Security, Sophos and Symantec and Gold Sponsor MTS Allstream in helping to bring the event to Canada.

"The event promises to be an important addition to the calendar for IT security professionals in Canada."
