Market-Proofing Your Career: Building Your Personal Brand in an Uncertain Economy * Neopolitan III-IV

There was a time when a successful career as a financial executive was almost completely built on hard work, progressive responsibility and continuing education. While those are still key components--with the increasingly globalized marketplace, an unpredictable economic environment and the impact of social media blending personal and corporate communications--careers are complicated exponentially from every angle in these tumultuous times.

This session will explore how to "market proof" your career through proven and timeless actions, describe what savvy executives are doing to globalize their skill sets, demonstrate how to harness the evolving advantages of social media and explain why all of this makes us better performers and leaders in the organizations we serve.

PRESENTER: Jerry Bostelman, Founding Partner, VACO Presented by VACO

Data Security Trends in 2013 * Milano VIII

A key reason for this growth in security investments is regulatory compliance. Organizations need to anticipate and plan for the coming wave of government interventions and regulations.

In this session, join security expert Suzanne Miller, Ph.D. of Vaco Compliance and Audit Group/Risk Solution Services as she discusses the latest security threats and solutions, and their impact on financial reporting.
