Effective Security Doesn’t Have to Be Expensive
Lean and effective information security programs are an absolute necessity in today's world. No crystal ball is necessary. Every organization will be impacted by a cyber-attack at some point in its lifecycle—sometimes more than once. The pain experienced during these attacks is entirely dependent on the effort spent prior to the attack. While breaches can be very costly, security programs don't have to be.

Join Ryan Elmer, Technology Risk Advisory Manager at Boulay, as he leads an executive-level discussion on how high-performing organizations understand and manage their information security risk across the entity-—not just through IT.

Efficient programs:
• Define what is important through an asset-driven security program
• Create a common language to discuss information security risk with technical and non-technical people
• Establish acceptable levels of risk
• Formalize applicable controls and determine their importance
• Discover vulnerabilities in technology, people and processes that add risk
• Construct programs that manage risk
• Determine if the existing and newly created programs are effective

Attendees will learn how to:
• Define what is important and what's not
• Translate IT jargon and business-speak
• Create the playbook
• Discover vulnerabilities
• Construct effective programs

Registration includes breakfast.
