Location: Westin BWI Hotel

Abstract: Martin Roesch will speak on Effective Network Security in a Dynamic World to kick off UMBC's 10th Annual Visionaries in IT forum on Wednesday September 30.

Martin Roesch, a respected authority on intrusion prevention and detection technology and forensics, will discuss why today's network security isn't getting the job done. He will also share his vision on where network security is heading in the future. Why must network security be intelligent to be effective? Why must it provide full network visibility, relevant context, and automated impact assessment and IPS tuning? How can network security adapt to dynamic networks and threats in real time?

Roesch is the founder and CTO of Sourcefire, a network security company based in Columbia MD. Roesch is also well known as the creator of the widely used Snort network intrusion detection and prevention system.

The breakfast meeting is free and open to the public, but registration is required. It will take place at the Westin BWI hotel (map, 1110 Old Elkridge Landing Road, Linthicum, MD 21090, (443) 577-2300) 7:30am – 9:00am on Wednesday 30 September 2009.
