When times get tough, it's all too tempting to push security concerns aside. But that's a fool's game. Fortunately, there are ways for small and midsize companies to address security issues without breaking the bank. To learn more, check out the On-Demand version of bMighty bSecure, which brings together business and security experts to show you how to do exactly that.bMighty bSecure comprises a full day of inspiring and informative presentations, networkingin engaging and life-like Virtual Event environment available right from your desktop. Plus, in the on-demand version, you can access transcripts of all the interactions in the Networking Lounge and exhibitor booths.

The keynote session on Cost-Effective Security Strategies, includes security expert Trey Ford from White Hat Security; Forrester Research's Jonathan Penn, author of The State Of SMB IT Security: 2008 To 2009; and Leigh McMullen from international consultancy Sogeti, who explains how his mid-market clients are facing their security issues.

Tim Wilson from bMighty sister site Dark Reading leads a session on the The 5 Most Common Sources Of SMB Security Breaches -- And How To Prevent Them. Tim is joined by Keith Jones from Jones Dykstra & Associates; Nick Akerman from the law firm of Dorsey & Whitney LLP, and Mike Fratto of InformationWeek's Network Computing Labs.

Perhaps my favorite panel covers Security Appliances, the hot new approach to making security easy. I'm joined by Phil Hochmuth from research house Yankee Group; security expert Andrew Braunberg from Current Analysis; and Russ Hedgpeth, ex-police officer and CEO of Unity Electronics, a mid-market company actually using a security appliance! This panel is entertaining on point, clearly laying out the key strengths and issues around Unified Threat Management (UTM).

And because true security also means being able to recover from problems, bMighty security blogger Keith Ferrell moderates a Disaster Recovery panel on how to make sure your business is ready to survive the worst. Keith's panel includes Howard Marks from Networks Are Our Lives, who has written on this topic for bMighty; Rob Ayoub from Frost & Sullivan; and Glen Slater, Director of IT at Clinical Financial Services (learn more about how this small business uses "big-boy" disaster recovery technology to gain the trust of enterprise clients).
