The challenges to network security have never been greater with the result that enterprises must face the issue of how to secure their business in the face of escalating threats and rising costs.

That's where IDC's Security Conference 2003 can help. The conference, being held at London's Carlton Tower Hotel on September 16, 2003, will address the main business issues of security across the enterprise.

Focusing particularly on Internet security, the conference will show how the costs involved in securing the enterprise can be justified in order to gain boardroom approval. Delegates will also have the opportunity to hear how leading organisations have dealt with security problems and assess which solutions are most appropriate for their organisation.
