Greg Brown assumed his current role in 2008, championing value delivery for McAfee's network defense portfolio. Brown joined the McAfee network intrusion prevention product management team in 2006. In that role he sponsored industry leading advances in network security integration with McAfee's systems and risk management product lines. He has more than 15 years experience in the network security and telecommunications industry, working with silicon technology vendors, security software/hardware vendors and service providers.

Looking all around us attackers continue to break into systems, steal information and cause significant damage for organizations of any size. Many think that attackers are more sophisticated and no matter what they do an organization cannot protect itself. The major problem is that organizations are doing good things but they are not doing the right things. By understanding future trends, threat and vulnerabilities, organizations can better align themselves to build more effective defensive measures. This talk will discuss the future trends and then describe effective security measures that can be deployed today to protect an organization.
