Designing a Security Awareness Program
Security surveys have shown investments in Security Awareness are inadequate while other surveys say that better awareness would improve the level of security. These surveys demonstrate what most security professionals know about importance of Security Awareness and the lack of financial support for the program. It is critical for companies to have some form of a Security Awareness Program. This presentation will provide resource information to build or enhance a Security Awareness Program utilizing materials that are no cost or minimal cost to the company. Additionally, with very little time investment from the security professional, these resources will allow the security professional to define or enhance a Security Awareness Program and start implementing Security Awareness at his/her company.
A View Into Qualitative Risk Assessments
Most companies have risk management departments to handle losses and claims but struggle with IT Security Risk Assessments. This presentation reviews Quantitative and Qualitative risk assessments, who how a qualitative risk assessment can be created for applications, systems and business partners. After the assessment is created, the presentation will demonstrate how these assessments can be rated.
Maximizing Your CPE Credits
Professionals seek various certifications to enhance their career. A requirement for most certifications is to obtain continuing professional education (CPE) credits. This presentation will discuss various certifications, the requirements of the certifications and how becoming involved with local organizations helps meet the certification requirements.
