Information Security Media Group (ISMG), platinum media sponsor of RSA Conference 2013, will be presenting panel sessions on risk management and fraud at this year's event, which opens Feb. 25 in San Francisco.
The sessions are part of the RSA Conference agenda, which consists of over 275 sessions held across 22 tracks, covering a wide range of critical themes and topics within information security, including: application security, data security and privacy, GRC, mobile security, and hackers and threats.
"As platinum media sponsor for the fourth consecutive year, not only will we be covering the event exhaustively, but we will also be presenting on timely topics that are top-of-mind for information security professionals," says Tom Field, VP - Editorial. "These sessions will provide attendees with valuable insight they can take with them to their jobs."
ISMG's two panel sessions include:
Risk Management: How to Put Theory into Practice: Hosted by Executive Editor Eric Chabrow, this session will focus on why organizations continue to struggle putting a risk management framework into place. Participants include Ron Ross, Fellow at NIST; Justin Somaini, former CISO at Yahoo!; and John Streufert, National Cybersecurity Division Director with the Department of Homeland Security. The session will be held Weds., Feb. 27, 9:20 a.m., Room 133 of the Moscone Center.
Banking Fraud: Where Is The Liability - With the Customer, Bank or Vendor: Hosted by Managing Editor Tracy Kitten, this session features a debate on the question of who is liable when a business banking account is breached - the customer whose credentials were stolen or the bank that failed to catch the transaction.

This session will be held Thurs., Feb. 28, 9:20 a.m., Room 302.
