CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 17, 2009--
Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR):
Research, Inc., (Nasdaq: FORR) Security
Forum 2009: Shift Happened: Navigating The New Security & Risk
The days of double-digit growth in security and risk management (SRM)
budgets are gone — at least for now. Heading into 2010, Forrester
anticipates that SRM budgets will be flat or declining. In the past, the
ever-changing threat landscape ensured healthy budgets for information
security. But in today's economic climate, senior managers are no longer
willing to write blank checks for IT security.
Now is the time for Security & Risk professionals to move beyond
discussion of the recession and the resulting decrease in budgets, jobs,
and discretionary security projects. Forrester’s Security Forum will
help Security & Risk professionals respond to the changing SRM
landscape, find answers to the new threats facing their companies in
this new business climate, and measure and communicate the success of
their information security programs to senior management.
WHEN: September 10-11, 2009
WHERE: Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine
3777 La Jolla Village Drive
San Diego, CA 92122
WHO: More than of a dozen of Forrester’s industry-leading
analysts will be joined by featured industry speakers including:
Ingo Elfering, Vice President, IT Strategy, GlaxoSmithKline
Daniel E. Geer, Sc.D., Vice President and Chief Scientist, Verdasys
Marcus J. Ranum, Chief Security Officer, Tenable Network Security
Herbert H. Thompson, Chief Security Strategist, People Security
W. Hord Tipton, Executive Director and Member, Board of Directors,
Steve Whitlock, Chief Information Security Strategist, The Boeing

The forum offers three in-depth tracks focused to help Security & Risk
professionals master major shifts they are facing in business
expectations, ownership, and security architecture. Attendees will also
have the opportunity to schedule One-On-One Meetings with Forrester
analysts and to network with peers. Ten sponsors — including platinum
sponsor Symantec and gold sponsors The Trusted Computing Group and
VeriSign — will share their solutions in a technology showcase.
Attendees can also register for the pre-Forum Workshop “Measuring
The Effectiveness Of Your Security Organization,” which will both be
