The UNITED Security Summit will be held on September 12-14, 2012 at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco, CA.

UNITED, which stands for “Using New Ideas to Empower Defenders” will bring together IT managers, leading-edge security professionals, innovative startups, open source projects and academics to foster collaboration and innovation in addressing the ever-changing security landscape. This year’s theme, “Truth, Lies, and Decisions: Moving Forward in an Insecure World” will teach attendees how to decipher industry FUD and myths and understand acceptable levels of organizational risk in order to implement sound security programs that improve their organization’s security posture.

The UNITED keynote will be presented by Dan Heath, award-winning author, journalist, and speaker best known for co-writing best-sellers Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard and Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die. Dan is known for his unique way of blending practical information with a funny and motivational style.

Attendees of the UNITED Security Summit will receive an iPad3 and are eligible for up to 16 CPE credits, depending on the number of sessions they attend.
