Interop is the biggest networking computing show on the planet. It is going on in Las Vegas thru Friday.
Since I know your time is limited, I have selected two items- a blog entry and a video- from the Daily Blog I suggest you queue up”
http://www.networkcomputing.com/blog/dailyblog/archives/2006/05/iss_and_you_the.htmlISS and You: The Fast Track to Managing Security?- “Two trends could spur more business the way of ISS’ managed services division: the convergence of security information management and network vulnerability assessment, and regulatory compliance demands,” writes Jennifer Zaino of what ISS has been up to lately.
“Wait, make that three-the desire to transition critical but mundane security tasks to a third-party provider without actually handing over the keys to the entire infrastructure,” she adds. “Or maybe four-the fact that fully implementing a security information management system can be a long, difficult and costly process, potentially taking (ISS says) up to six to 12 months and eating up hundreds of thousand of dollars just in product, plus deployment and management fees that can rack the bill up to a million bucks in just the first year.”

I’d also suggest checking Daily Blog after Interop ends. There’s sure to be more content. If I find anything you really ought to look at, I will post about it here.
