Security Executive Council Live Seminars Now Available on Demand

July 1, 2009, Washington, DC—After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback on its first two Security Executive Council Live Webinars, the Security Executive Council has decided to offer archives of the presentations in its online Leadership Store. This is a great way for risk professionals and security practitioners to access the expertise of Council faculty on their own timeline.

Unlike most other security-specific webinars, Security Executive Council Live programs are designed and delivered not by security technology product providers, but by highly successful security and risk practitioners from the world’s leading corporations. Created to be highly relevant to security practitioners in today’s environment, the presentations tackle executive-level leadership concerns such as industry research and benchmarking, career and influence issues, security measures and metrics, emerging issues, innovative solutions, strategic planning, security operations and policies, standards and regulatory compliance. Many of the presentations are supported by research and benchmarking conducted by the Security Executive Council and its research branch, the Security Leadership Research Institute.

The new archived versions of past Security Executive Council Live webinars allow practitioners to view the presentations with recorded audio, including the question-and-answer session that concludes each live webinar. Past presentations now available are:

• The Impact of Economic Recession on Security Program Management, with Richard Lefler, dean of SEC emeritus faculty and former CSO of American Express, and George Campbell, SEC emeritus faculty and former CSO of Fidelity Investments.

• A More Effective Way to Influence Management (Stop Selling Security), with SEC content expert faculty member and industry-leading security consultant Ray Bernard.
