FireMon’s Mark Carney will share how CISOs and their teams can appease the directive to “do more with what you have.”

OVERLAND PARK, KAN. – FireMon, a leading provider of security management solutions, today announced that Chief Information Security Officer Mark Carney will be a featured speaker at the IANS Information Security Forum, which takes place April 26-27 in San Francisco.

Carney was appointed to the CISO role in January 2016 after serving as general manager for FireMon’s security analytics platform Immediate Insight. He will join Marcus J. Ranum, Senior Strategist at Tenable Network Security, for the roundtable session “Network Security: Reloaded.

Taking place on April 27 at 2:25 p.m., the 2-hour session will kick off with Ranum examining “a way of reintegrating old techniques – the ones that work but are ‘hard’ – in a way that provides more predictable and better security than security ‘fads’ can provide.”

Carney will close the session with advice for security teams who too often hear “do more with what they have” rather than seek out additional technology and staff. He will share how FireMon’s security management platform has been designed to maximize existing technology investments and increase staff capacity through workflow automation and real-time analysis.

“Security teams today are dealing with an inundation of new technology without the time or resources to effectively manage them,” said Carney. “That’s the value FireMon brings to the table. We can give those teams better visibility and workflows, so they can better manage their security infrastructure.”
