Con-way's reception desk is located at west end (closest to 21st Ave.) of the AdTech II building, best accessed by turning into the entrance located on 21st Ave;  the main entrance to the building is on Savier Street on the west side of the building. This entrance is manned by a security guard and you will be asked to sign in.  Con-way has asked that guests park in the two lots to the East of NW 20th Avenue between NW Raleigh and NW Thurman.  Please do not park in spaces that are marked with names other than Con-way since these spaces are leased. The best option is the lot on the NE corner of NW Raleigh and NW 20th.



Breaches are inevitable.  You can implement strong security controls but breaches are a matter of when, not if it happens.  The faster you respond to a breach of personally identifiable or sensitive information, the lower the operational, financial, or reputational impact to your organization.  If your organization stores information such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers and financial information, you need to be in a position to respond and notify because it’s sound business practice and it’s the law in the State of Oregon.  The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of the regulatory requirements when it comes to breach notification and provide tools you can use in your own organizations to quickly respond to breaches when they occur, especially when you are required to notify your customers of such a breach.




This presentation is intended for security professionals, compliance officers, chief privacy officers and legal counsel who are or may be responsible for responding to security incidents that involves the unsecure breach of personally identifiable, protected, or sensitive information. 


Chris Apgar, CISSP, CEO and President of Apgar & Associates, LLC, is a nationally recognized information security, privacy and electronic health information exchange expert.  He has over 16 years of experience assisting health care organizations comply with HIPAA, HITECH and other privacy and security laws.  Mr. Apgar has assisted healthcare, utilities and financial organizations implement privacy and security safeguards to protect against organizational harm and harm to consumers. 

Mr. Apgar served as a member of the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange Board of Directors for eight years.  He currently is a member of the Oregon Prescription Drug Monitoring Advisory Commission.  Mr. Apgar has been a Certified Information Systems Security Professional since 2002 and is a senior member of the Information Systems Security Association.
