Registration opens for SARMA conference

Conference theme to focus on security risks 10 years after 9/11


The Security Analysis and Risk Management Association (SARMA) announced this week that registration is now open for its fifth annual conference, which is scheduled to take place between Sept. 13 and Sept. 15 in Arlington, Va.

The conference, which is being co-hosted by the George Mason University School of Law’s Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security (CIP/HS), will focus on security risks 10 years after Sept. 11 and what challenges are ahead.

"As SARMA celebrates its fifth year of service to the security risk management community, we are also mindful of another anniversary – the tenth since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. As these and subsequent events profoundly affected the ways in which we use risk to underpin decisions about national security, our annual conference this year will explore just how far we have come and foreshadow what may lie ahead – especially in these difficult financial times," said SARMA President Kerry L. Thomas. "In this regard, specialized subject tracks will explore the use of risk management principles to achieve community and infrastructure resilience, cyber security risk and resilience, public policy for risk management and resilience, and risk standards, methodologies and best practices. Collectively, we believe this approach will provide our members and guests with a rich experience in keeping with what they have come to expect from our annual conference, and also provide a fitting capstone to our first five years."

A discounted early bird rate will be in effect until Friday, July 15. For more information, click here to visit the conference website.
