Eren Girgin will discuss how TMX is utilizing the Kenna vulnerability management platform with integrated threat & exploit intelligence and how it helps TMX to make intelligent decisions for remediation and risk assessment efforts.

Eren is a Sr. Security Leader (Director) at TMX responsible for the Security Operations Center. Eren has been practicing information security since 1996 and for the last five years, Eren has been focusing on transforming traditional SOCs into “Threat Intelligence based” security operations centers, including the integration of operational and tactical threat intelligence into security infrastructure and developing use cases for anomaly detection. Eren studied computer science & programming and earned his executive MBA in 1999 through the Manchester School of Business MBA Program. Eren has the CISSP, CRISC and Sarbanes Oxley (CSOE) certifications as well as various certifications for different operating systems and platforms.

Irfahn Khimji will be discussing translating security to the business. As security professionals we are often asked what the heck we are actually doing and why the business should continue to spend money on us. This talk will help put some context around what it is we do and how to convey that to the laymen that sign our paycheques.

Irfahn has been working in the information security space for over ten years focused on vulnerability detection and risk calculation. Most recently, he has been working with large organizations to help prioritize their security spending in areas that yield the most return on investment.
