About Information Security Today
Information Systems Security Today, www.infosectoday.com, provides essential information for managing the security of a modern, evolving enterprise. It is written for information security managers and other technical managers and staff who are the first-line support responsible for the daily, efficient operation of security policies, procedures, standards, and practices.

They help readers solve problems and be applicable to on-the-job situations faced everyday by IT, information security, and networking and system administration professionals.
The emergent use of the internet, ATMs, credit cards and online banking has made cyber security especially challenging for banks and other financial institutions because they have been vulnerable targets for cybercrimes. While the government has taken steps to counter cyber-attacks with the introduction of certain bills such as the Cybersecurity and American Cyber Competitiveness Act, Cybersecurity and Internet Freedom Act and Cyber Security Enhancement Act, cyber security remains a critical issue for the financial industry.
Since companies are required to work closely with the governing bodies on cyber security, financial institutions and their chief security officers and business leadership team must create and implement cyber security best practices by deploying highly developed technologies to avoid potential pitfalls. The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished thought leaders, professionals and key regulators to help security and financial executives and management teams learn the latest best practices & policies for cyber security. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour Live webcast.
