ISACA’s Free Virtual Conference Highlights Mobile Device Management

Rolling Meadows, IL, USA (21 August 2013)—The mobile world is growing more complicated every day and enterprises need to adapt, prepare and respond. To help enterprises with mobile device management (MDM), ISACA, a global association of 110,000 IT professionals, is hosting a free virtual conference, Managing the Mobile Onslaught: Securing Endpoints to Apps, on Wednesday, 18 September 2013, from 7:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m. CDT (UTC-5).

**September Event Also Shares BYOD Guidance**

In this virtual conference, attendees will learn how to develop, manage and enforce a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy that protects enterprise data, while also meeting the requirements of evolving regulatory compliance and privacy rules.

In his keynote session, “Balancing the Corporate Risks and Rewards of Mobile Devices,” John Pironti, CGEIT, CISA, CISM, CISSP, CRISC, ISSAP, ISSMP, president of IP Architects, LLC, will examine the risk and reward associated with mobility and BYOD. He will explain how to implement a mobile device strategy that adheres to regulatory requirements and how to handle and recover critical data on a lost or exploited mobile device.

“As organizations and individuals embrace mobility for its diverse business benefits, they must take great care in its use to ensure that the privacy, security, and integrity of their valuable information assets are preserved,” said Pironti. “In this virtual conference, we will discuss how to strike a delicate balance and manage the risks that these powerful and useful devices introduce.”
