Complexity seems unstoppable. The Ponemon Institute surveyed almost 600 security professionals to study, for the first time, the impact of complexity on enterprise security posture. How can you identify the warning signs of complexity in your organization? Is complexity stopping security technologies from being implemented effectively? Is the move to mobile and cloud making the problem worse? What are the implications for security architecture and who should be accountable in your organization for addressing them?

Dr. Larry Ponemon, Founder of Ponemon Institute, and Ojas Rege, Chief Strategy Officer of MobileIron, will share the findings of the research and discuss practical approaches for dealing with an increasingly paralyzing problem. Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of The Cost and Consequences of Security Complexity research from the Ponemon Institute.
