Layered Technologies Chief Risk Officer to Speak at NexTI 2012

Layered Technologies, Inc. (@LayeredTech), a leading global provider of compliant and secure cloud and hosting services supporting mission-critical e-business applications, today announced that Chief Risk Officer Jeff Reich will present a case study titled, “Guaranteed Compliance Services, The Next Outsourcing Target,” at NexTI 2012. The event, designed for technology suppliers and solution providers wanting to gain a strategic understanding of the technologies, services and product building blocks that will propel their businesses, will be held October 28-30 in Las Vegas.

During the session, Reich will discuss how regulations, industry standards and policies are affecting the market and resulting in organizations seeking ways to offset the burden of achieving compliance so they can focus on growing their business. Reich will explain that many organizations cannot build or buy the expertise needed to deal with compliance issues, and he will share alternative approaches so enterprises can better navigate the complex compliance landscape.

A popular industry speaker, Reich has more than 30 years of experience and is a well-known risk management and security expert in the hosting market. In his current role, Reich is responsible for driving Layered Tech’s security and compliance services and guiding customers’ risk mitigation efforts in areas such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA and FISMA.

“Enterprises are increasingly seeking help to ensure they meet rigorous industry standards and pass IT audits and assessments. Layered Tech uses a unique mix of custom configuration of industry-standard tools to offer complete compliance management services and enable customers’ IT staff to focus on core business responsibilities,” said Reich. “NexTI has its roots in helping technology suppliers and solution designers define what comes next, and Layered Tech is thrilled to share the role managed hosting and compliance services play in supporting the short- and long-term IT and business initiatives at enterprises of all sizes.”

Reich holds CRISC, CISSP and CHS-III certifications and is an ISSA Distinguished Fellow. His extensive background includes successful programs that have dealt with security policies, information security, internal controls, physical security, liaison work with local and federal law enforcement, regulatory and audit compliance, business continuity planning, abuse and policy enforcement management, and change control. Reich, one of the industry’s most sought-after speakers who regularly appears at thought-leadership events such as NexTI, guides domestic and international enterprises’ compliance, security and risk-mitigation practices. Prior to joining Layered Tech, Reich was the chief security officer for Rackspace Hosting, and he also held positions as vice president and chief security officer of CheckFree and senior manager of information protection at Dell Inc.
