Taking On Mobile & Wireless Security
Dec. 2-7, 2011  |  Las Vegas, NV

What makes a good Information Security conference? Information security covers a very wide domain, and many conferences try to incorporate too many topics within a space of a couple of days. The benefit of a thematic and topical conference is to deliver concise information and incorporate discussions revolving around a specific subject matter that can relate to its target audience. Not too many IT security conferences design its program along this stance.
