One of the most popular annual conference sessions, "Meet the Enemy," features a live teleconference where attendees interact directly with hackers, to learn how to better protect the valuable information assets of their organizations.

"This event is the largest of its kind in the industry," states Patrice Rapalus, director of Computer Security Institute. "Each year attendees meet at the Annual Conference to enhance their skills, learn from the experts and come away better prepared to do battle in their challenge. Each year the security threats grow; it is essential that security professionals keep current on the ways to counteract and defend against those threats."
