Security SIG: Information Security M&A and Investment Activity - Implications



  • The Monthly Meeting of the Security SIG



    Vispi Daver, Senior Manager of Corporate Development Network Associates, Inc.

    Presentation Overview

    Most of the innovations in security come from startup emerging companies. For IT and security managers, there is often a tradeoff between getting the best and most innovative security for their companies, and the risks of relying on products that could be orphaned if their vendors go out of business or get acquired. Vispi Daver will help IT and security managers to understand these risk factors so that they can make better decisions about the vendors and products they select.
