This past Monday we held the very first Society of Information Risk Analysts Conference (SIRAcon). The event was hosted in the same venue, and in coordination with, the Secure360 conference. For a first-time conference, this was a really remarkable event. We had about 35 attendees, all of whom were very engaged in the conversation. Overall, we could not have asked for a much better event.
Personally, my favorite part of the conference was the "risk practitioners' panel" that I helped organized (I know that sounds a bit ego-centric, but it was a lot of fun!). It was great to have such a range of talented, experienced risk management professionals talk about their experiences, challenges they've encountered, and how they see the future unfolding.
Given the success of this inaugural event, I think it's safe to say that there will be another. It's obviously way too early to say when and where it will be, but it'll definitely happen. We hope that you'll be able to join us next time!
