Seminar 06A - Establishing an Information Security Program
PLEASE NOTE: Separate registration and fee is required to attend this seminar.
Tuesday, October 18 | 9:30AM–1:00PM | Meeting Room 105A/B
Session Type: E11
This interactive session will provide an overview of areas such as growing the program, gaining broad support, finding resources, focusing direction, and planning for what comes next. Many information security seminars and classes focus either on specific areas of the security landscape or technical tools and methods. While these subjects provide very useful information and skills needed to operate a security program, they do not offer sufficient guidance on the development of the information security program itself. This seminar will focus on the management and leadership issues that must be addressed in order to launch a program and obtain the institutional buy-in necessary for success. We'll take a look at creating staffing models, assessing risk, developing policy, raising campus-wide awareness, training staff, addressing privacy issues, and setting operational and technical controls. Participants will be given an opportunity to discuss and potentially address security issues from their own institutions.
