Legislation and regulation continue to be extremely important drivers for information security professionals. Given the ever-increasing requirements for security, we're charged with understanding how current, pending, and possible future pronouncements will affect our approaches to information security, both nationally and internationally. 

Last year's legislative and regulatory issues have again put us in a position where we must try to address these question:
• How do we prioritize what is most important? 
• What can we do to make compliance easier? 
• How do we get our policies aligned with the differing regulatory environments across different jurisdictions? 
• How do we deal with export controls (software and information)?
• And in some cases, how do we avoid fines and simply stay out of jail? 

Hear the views on this topic and the questions around it from industry experts.
