Listen to our recorded podcast on how enterprises need to change their thinking to face cyber threats, or read the transcript. The podcast was recorded by Dana Gardner of Interarbor Solutions at The Open Group Conference, San Diego 2011.
The Open Group Conference, San Diego: I’ve found these conferences over the past five years an invaluable venue for meeting and collaborating with CIOs, enterprise architects, standards stewards and thought leaders on enterprise issues. It’s one of the few times when the mix of technology, governance and business interests mingle well for mutual benefit.

Security needs to be associated with data and people; not the connections and routers that carry it.
