The Monday night dinner speaker will be vArmour CISO, Demetrios Lazarikos who will discuss managing the Internet of Things.

The IoT (Internet of Things) will become challenging to manage from a Technical and Information Security perspective. Consumer-facing devices will be integrated into Enterprise legacy systems, which have evolved to using more modern technologies like cloud and mobile. Businesses will demand that technology be integrated into the Enterprise faster than before while Technologists,Developers, and Information Security practitioners will need to align accordingly.

In this presentation,vArmourCISO, Demetrios Lazarikos (Laz) will present some of his researchin this area as organizations move to IoT. Some topics that will be addressed:

What's top of mind for executives as they move to emerging technologies and IoT?

Preparing a cloud strategy and some options in protecting the legacy and merging technologies.

How to embrace DevOps and Agile frameworks while building a scalable Information Security program that integrates seamlessly into the environment without impacting business growth.

How the enterprise is going to manage, monitor and alert on the openness of systems that are now tethered to the Enterprise legacy environment on a global scale and are operating 24x7x365 days a year.

On Tuesday, Region 5 will hold its Region Board Meeting, followed by two Chapter Leaders Workshops:

Workshop #1:  "Think Outside the Box" Update from each chapter

Workshop #2:  National Collegiate Conference and Career Fair Update
