Threat Prediction and Prevention (9:00 AM to 12:00 PM; March 8th, 2012)


Mission leaders tell us that they find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place -- between intensifying mission and threat challenges on the one hand, and out moded and out dated information management and analytics systems on the other hand that simply limit their ability to respond.   They tell us they have reached a tipping point, where they know they need to transform the way they leverage information to predict and prevent attack or crime.   The good news is that many have embraced the opportunity, have invested to address, and we now know what the transformation looks like.  Please join this best practices discussion to learn about the common challenges mission leaders face, the efforts some have taken to address them, and what we have learned are the keys to success. You will hear from a US Department of Defense Officer how he harnessed the value of his information assets to address insider threat at our military bases, as well as IBM practitioners who helped make it happen. Along the way, we will discuss the investments IBM has made to support clients through the transformation, including advances in Business Analytics, Identity Insight and sophisticated visualization, with the acquisition of companies like SPSS and i2 Technologies.
