When/Topic: Thursday, May 22, 2008, 11:15 AM – 12:00 PM: Five Reasons Your Business Needs NAC: Network Access Control has been in the security spotlight for the last couple of years.

In this session, audience members will be exposed to five specific areas where NAC can have a direct and immediate impact on the security policy compliance of devices on or attempting to access the network. This session will be held in the presentation theater.

Wednesday, May 21st @ 1:15-2:00 PM: Network Security – Leveraging NAC and IPS: This expert panel discussion will focus on how NAC and Intrusion Prevention can be leveraged to provide maximum benefits by incorporating quality internal policy and enforcement practices. This panel discussion will be held in Room 12.

About the Event: SecureWorld Expo is the first Regional Conference formed to promote the ideals of fostering communication between security professionals and technology leaders, to discuss best practices and to bind that body of thought in a public/private partnership with Government.
