Security Without Borders

Monday, February 16
15:45-16:35
Breakout 3

Discuss new technology that an organization can employ to maintain a secure but open environment extending to its mobile workforce and allowing critical communication during and after an event.

Historically security has been associated with borders. Today an enterprise’s most valuable assets, a combination of people, ideas and information, are neither protected nor contained by traditional borders. Recognizing this, many core concepts of security need to be re-examined: What is the value of protecting a facility when much of the workforce operates from somewhere else? How do we assess the status of an organization when significant parts of it are not only remote, but mobile? How do we provide for the safety of lone workers or small work groups outside the reach of organizational response capabilities? These questions are leading to the development of a new class of security solutions and services to meet the needs of the dynamic, distributed, mobile organization.
