TMC's SecureIT Conference Locks-In BYOD Program
NORWALK, Conn. --(Business Wire)--
TMC (News - Alert) today announced programming for its SecureIT
Conference to take place on Tuesday, July 23, 2013 at the NYU Kimmel
Center in New York City. This intense one-day event will bring together
leading industry experts, solutions providers, end users and IT
professionals to learn cutting-edge industry trends and practices to
ensure critical information and communication assets are protected
amidst the BYOD peak.
"As BYOD becomes the norm in enterprises, it is essential for companies
to be aware and armed with the information they need to combat potential
security threats to their systems," says Rich Tehrani (News - Alert), TMC CEO and
conference chairman. "In an age where a single malware family dubbed
BadNews has rapidly infected over 9 million Android devices, we believe
The SecureIT Conference is the best resource for industry security
information to combat such threats."
The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend and related developments such as
virtualization and the cloud, have generated higher risk levels in
enterprises. As a result, it is imperative for companies to provide
enterprise security knowledge and tactics to their IT professionals.

and business processes. Sessions will approach the BYOD phenomenon from
