During this panel discussion, Melancon and others will examine a variety of data breaches in order to provide attendees with practical security lessons and advice gleaned from real security incidents.

Panel members include Javvad Malik, senior analyst, enterprise security practice, for 451 Research; Brian Honan, CEO of BH Consulting and IRISSCERT; and Quentyn Taylor, director of EMEA information security for Canon Europe.
