Blue Hill Research to Share Importance of Educating Executives on Risk at Lockpath Ready Summit

Published on September 9, 2015

OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS — Recent years have seen increasing demand for insight and visibility into both compliance and risk performance from boards of directors and other senior business executives. Blue Hill Research, a provider of research and analysis on the global IT industry, will present a keynote on how compliance and risk management professionals can effectively channel this attention from leadership at the Lockpath Ready Summit (LPRS) in Kansas City.

Blue Hill’s Principal Analyst David Houlihan will present the day two keynote, “The Board’s View of Risk: Stepping from Presentation to Partnership,” on Oct. 21. An experienced advisor with a unique understanding of complex information environments and business legal needs, Houlihan researches enterprise risk management, compliance and policy management, and legal technology.

“In light of recent breaches and increasing regulations, organizations have become more concerned with strengthening their compliance and security programs,” Houlihan said. “However, many information security and risk management practitioners struggle in getting their company leadership to set a tone of organizational awareness through proactive governance.”

Houlihan’s LPRS keynote will draw from research interviews with information security officers and risk management leadership at several organizations. He will discuss effective methods of presenting to and engaging directors on risk exposure, performance and strategy.

LPRS, Lockpath’s inaugural user summit, will gather users of the Keylight compliance and risk management platform, company partners and industry experts for two days of workshops, customer presentations, solution showcases and more.

“The Keylight platform helps users create high-level dashboards and reports that garner increased attention from CEOs, CIOs, CISOs and others,” Chris Caldwell, Lockpath CEO and founder, said. “Blue Hill will educate LPRS attendees on how to maximize this time in front of company leaders to further security, compliance and risk management initiatives.”
