We as security professionals are faced with a multitude of dilemma’s in the performance of our duties. These dilemmas range in nature including the following questions;

•What new technology do we need to protect against the latest threats?
•How much security do we put into our infrastructures and yet still not be obtrusive?
•Should we or can we hack back to stop an attack?
•How often do we test?
•How do we harmoniously integrate our operational processes with those of our enterprise?
•How much time do we need to spend tracking laws and regulations?

This webinar will attempt to provide insight into these issues and others as we move forward.
