I'm Jeanette Fetzer, IBM Tivoli security portfolio manager. I'm blogging today because I'm lucky enough to be the track chair for the Security, Risk Management and Compliance track at our upcoming Pulse
event in Las Vegas next week. I'm really excited about the agenda this year. We have over 30 of our security customers speaking in the track in a mix of panel and solo sessions. I can tell you that from having reviewed the drafts of the security presentations for the event over the past few weeks, this will be a very interesting event!
Last year, the panel on Identity and Access Management was a big hit, and therefore we're organizing that again this year with different participants. We've added a panel on Information Security that also features select Guardium customers. We also have a panel on how federation facilitates collaboration across organizations and drives business value. Many of our customers are eager to talk about identity services in the cloud - we'll host a panel on this very topic.
We've had several outstanding prep sessions with the panelists for each of these sessions, where the participants were able to share their input with the rest of the panel ahead of the event. The panelists were really dynamic, sharing their tips and tricks with each other.
These panels, as well as the other sessions, will feature good time for audience interaction - so bring your questions!
Overall the agenda is looking fantastic - with sessions on compliance and risk management, virtualization and encryption key management. We'll start the week with an exciting kickoff from Kris Lovejoy, VP of IBM Security Strategy and Greg Adams, Director of Tivoli Security, Risk Management and Compliance Product Management. They'll give you an update on our strategy and offerings. On the showfloor, you can find a wealth of security experts and a wide variety of demos from identity and access management to application security to virtualization security and even security management and compliance on System z.
I'll be there next week, taking it all in - hope to see you too!
