Terry Ray, senior vice president of data security and field chief technology officer at software provider Imperva, spoke Monday during a presentation at a conference in Las Vegas jointly sponsored by ISACA, formerly the Information Systems Audit and Control Association, and the Institute of Internal Auditors.
