Qualys CEO to Present on Convergence of Compliance and Security and Deliver Keynote at Jericho Forum Conference During Annual RSA Event
SAN FRANCISCO, RSA CONFERENCE—BOOTH #1738 - April 7, 2008 - Qualys®, Inc., the leading provider of on demand IT security risk and compliance management solutions, today announced that Qualys’ CEO and Chairman, Philippe Courtot, will present an opening session on April 10 for the 2008 RSA Conference, the world’s premier information security tradeshow. The same day, Courtot will also deliver the keynote speech for the Jericho Forum Conference, sponsored by the highly respected international IT security thought-leadership group and held in conjunction with the RSA Conference.
Courtot will kick off the Thursday, April 10 schedule of speakers at the 2008 RSA Conference, with his presentation titled, “The Convergence of Security and Compliance.” His talk will provide an overview of both the benefits and the steps for converging security and compliance initiatives within the organization. Courtot will also outline how the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, recognized now as the future of software delivery, enables the entire compliance and security lifecycle to be centrally aligned and provide the audience with guidance to overcoming organizational hurdles so that all operational teams can efficiently access, manage, evaluate and enforce security and compliance policies.
Courtot’s discussion is based on what he describes as the “thinning of corporate IT departments,” which is caused by corporations trying to maintatin secure IT systems and comply with government and industry regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, SB 1386, GLBA and others.
“IT security, operations and audit teams are challenged with respect to information sharing despite their common pursuit of similar security and compliance goals. In too many cases, they’re forced to duplicate manual efforts,” said Courtot. “The challenge is that, of all the responsibilities associated with IT security and compliance, only about 30 percent of tasks can be automated, leaving the majority to be handled manually.”
In his keynote address to the Jericho Forum on Thursday afternoon, Courtot will review the security industry contributions of the Jericho Forum and provide his perspective on the key initiatives facing the group, including the development of methods by which organizations can have secure browsing.
