Cybersecurity Expert Joel Brenner to Deliver Keynote Address at Guidance Software’s CEIC 2014 Conference

Guidance Software (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, announced today that Joel Brenner, a former inspector general of the National Security Agency (NSA), will be the keynote speaker at CEIC® 2014. The event brings together security, e-discovery and forensic investigations professionals for hands-on lab sessions and presentations delivered by industry experts representing leading government agencies and corporations from around the world. Topics include: endpoint threat detection, incident response, and digital forensics, as well as technology challenges and solutions for legal issues. CEIC 2014 will be held May 19-22, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

“Mr. Brenner has served as a leader in global counterintelligence, an expert on cybersecurity and data protection, and as a prosecutor. His efforts to combat cybercrime coupled with a background in the law give him a unique understanding of security threats and the importance of rigorous digital investigations,” said Alex Andrianopoulos, vice president of Marketing for Guidance Software, which hosts and organizes CEIC. “His depth and breadth of knowledge will be invaluable for attendees tasked with operating in today’s increasingly sophisticated and complex cybersecurity landscape.”

Brenner was the NSA’s inspector general, responsible for its top-secret internal audits and investigations. He went on to oversee U.S. counterintelligence policy and strategy for the director of national intelligence, where he was responsible for integrating the counterintelligence activities of the 17 departments and agencies including the FBI, CIA, and the Departments of Defense, Energy and Homeland Security. He has also served as a prosecutor in the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division and has extensive trial and arbitration experience in private practice. Brenner is the author of America the Vulnerable: Inside the New Threat Matrix of Digital Espionage, Crime, and Warfare, now available in paperback as Glass Houses: Privacy, Secrecy, and Cyber Insecurity in a Transparent World.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Successful transition from traditional IT to cloud computing requires three key ingredients: an IT architecture that allows companies to extend their internal best practices to the cloud, a cost point that allows economies of scale, and automated processes that manage risk exposure and maintain regulatory compliance with industry regulations (FFIEC, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA).
