"This important annual event has grown significantly since it was introduced in 2011," said W. Hord Tipton, CISSP, executive director of (ISC)². "Last year, Security Congress attracted over 1,200 attendees, and the numerous (ISC)² members I spoke with were impressed by the caliber of both the presenters and sessions. Their satisfaction was also reflected in the feedback we received from the 90 high quality educational sessions that received an overall score of 5.23 out of a possible 6.0 by conference attendees. The 2014 event will offer even more compelling education, networking, and career development opportunities, including new conference tracks in healthcare security, digital forensics and professional development."
