Richard A. Clarke, Former White House Cybersecurity Czar, to Keynote Courion CONVERGE Conference Clarke will address cyber threats affecting organizations large and small at the identity and access management provider’s annual gathering Business Wire WESTBOROUGH, Mass. -- April 23, 2013 Richard A. Clarke, the first cybersecurity czar at the White House and author of Cyber War: The Next Threat to National Security and What to Do About It, will keynote Courion Corporation’s annual conference, CONVERGE 2013, beginning May 19th in Atlanta. Clarke served as the chief cybersecurity adviser to Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush and is the Chairman of Good Harbor Security Risk Management, a cybersecurity risk management consulting firm. In his book Cyber War, Clarke details the threat of international attacks on the computer infrastructures of critical industrial and government targets. The topic dovetails with Courion’s mission to help companies succeed in a world of open access and increasing threats. Courion’s identity and access management (IAM) solutions help organizations discover and proactively manage these risks in real time. Cyber attacks, whether perpetrated by those outside or inside the business, are a growing threat in today’s mobile, always-on, cloud-based environment, where openness is imperative. Many cyber attacks go undiscovered by companies as private customer data or high-priced intellectual property bleeds out of the organization. Courion’s identity and access intelligence solution, Access Insight™, is unique in its ability to provide a comprehensive real-time view of business risk, enabling CISOs to stop these kinds of breaches before they occur. “Cyber attacks are a pandemic costing companies significantly,” said Clarke. “The old technologies and approaches are insufficient against the latest threats. I look forward to offering my take on the growing threat of cyber attacks, and learning from the attendees I meet at CONVERGE.” Managing the risk of breaches – internal, external, malicious and inadvertent – will be a central theme of CONVERGE 2013, which takes place Sunday, May 19th, through Wednesday, May 22nd, in Atlanta. At the 11^th annual conference, Courion’s customers, partners and industry experts will discuss how organizations can take their identity and access management strategies to the next level. Session speakers include Courion customers from organizations such as the American Red Cross, BankUnited, HealthSpring, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, State Street Corporation and Universal American. Courion-led presentations will highlight the insight gained through Courion’s real-time predictive analytics and deep knowledge of the threat world. The company will discuss how continuously analyzing user access data can help organizations identify associations and patterns that might violate compliance guidelines or company policies before they create a serious risk to the company. “I’ve been to several CONVERGE conferences and have gained terrific insights at the events,” said Kyle Duke, Vice President of IT and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at HealthSpring. “I’ve attended many valuable sessions and implemented solutions based on what I have learned. Those solutions have brought us meaningful results in terms of efficiency, risk reduction and compliance. I’d recommend attending, and Mr. Clarke’s appearance will definitely make this year’s event memorable.” To learn more and register to attend CONVERGE 2013, visit http://www.courion.com/Converge2013/index.php.
