In November, serving in his capacity as Information Security Manager of Chicago Public Schools, Edward Marchewka moderated a panel at the 2014 Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Leadership Forum in Chicago, as part of the Argyle Executive Forum. The InfraGard At-Large Director, along with the panel that included Greg Bee (CISO, Country Insurance & Financial Services), Rich Campagna (Vice President of Products, Bitglass), Tony Coppa (Vice President of Engineering, AvePoint), John Johnson (Global Security Strategist, John Deere) and Fred Kwong (Head of Privilege Access Control, Farmers Insurance Group of Companies), addressed a robust program of issues confronting information security professionals today.

The discussion, “Securing the Organization While Embracing New Innovations,” examined emerging technologies and their likely impact on business for the coming year, the many-textured pros and cons of cloud computing, data storage and collaboration, and the current best practices to implement for successful incident response. Other compelling, forward-thinking topics explored the questions of whether or not IT security should be a business enabler, and how IT security can foster a culture of security within a given organization. end_icon
