27K: The Security Summit for the Americas Call for Papers: Deadline Extended to January 30


Mark Your Calendar: May 13-14, 2015
at the Omni Austin Hotel Southpark in Austin, TX

You are invited to propose a conference presentation for 27K: The Security Summit for the Americas. The 27K Summit will bring experts in the ISO 27001 standard together with those who are on the front lines of international IT security to promote the standard in the US and the Western Hemisphere. ISO 27001 is an industry-agnostic standard for information security within the context of an organization's management and processes. Visit www.iso27001.com for complete information.

We are focused on attracting participants from information security integrators, consultants, procurers, deployers, administrators, government organizations, and academia. Our program consists of one day of workshops and tutorials, followed by two days of 30 minute presentations (plus 15 minutes for questions). We solicit proposals for high quality papers and relevant workshops that will be of interest to the community involved with IT security on topics such as:


  • Risk Assessment
  • Security Policy
  • Organization of Information Security
  • Asset Management
  • Human Resources Security
  • Physical and Environmental Security
  • Communications and Operations Management
  • Access Control
  • Information Systems Acquisition, Development and Maintenance
  • Information Security Incident Management
  • Business Continuity Management
  • Compliance

The committee favors vendor-neutral presentations that focus on the practical solutions for IT security and certification. Product vendors are encouraged to recruit clients and partners who are front-line implementers as presenters.
