Hack attacks – and in particular Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) – are on the rise, eroding reputations and looting organizational and customer assets with disturbing regularity. With mobility the new norm and native-device-level mobile security in its relative infancy, are BYOD enterprises inviting APT attacks? Mobile devices potentially open the organizational network to an entirely new set of security risks that challenge both IT professionals and C-suite executives to plan strategically and move proactively. This session examines effective new approaches to redefine the network perimeter, gain real time network visibility and insight into who and what is on it, and control access automatically. Importantly, the session offers proven strategies for preventing and controlling APTs and other infections – whether from mobile devices, an online users’ “bad click” or other common hack attack strategies. Through new network visibility and control, organizations can secure their network and assets while supporting the productivity and freedom that mobility promises and users expect.

Business schools are under growing pressure to engage in significant programmatic reforms in light of the business community’s call for web-savvy, problem-solving graduates. Even AACSB has gotten into the reformation act by recommending the adoption of a comprehensive collaboration strategy. To meet these and related financial challenges, many schools of business are turning to social media to provide learning opportunities at a time and place convenient to the student. The purpose of this presentation is to highlight the growing opportunities for using social media to enhance learning outcomes and to outline strategies for implementing this revolutionary process throughout the management education community of practice.
The mobile enterprise challenges are mounting: enabling users simple and secure access to the network, ensuring applications run smoothly, and building sufficient capacity to handle usage and growth. A superior level of Wi-Fi design is required—something shown to be lacking by a recent report: “By 2015, 80% of newly installed wireless networks will be obsolete because of lack of proper planning.” An indication of the problem is that a wireless user is provisioned with less than 5% of the bandwidth of a wired user. This session will examine critical design components to ensure predictable performance, even under heavy loads.
