SEM01F-Developing an "Ideal" Information Security Program (separate registration required)

Monday, April 18 | 9:30AM–5:30PM | Grand Ballroom I, Grand Level, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Come prepared for a crowdsourcing experience that may have an epic impact on your information security program. Together we will deconstruct, design, and build the ideal security program. What will it take to get there? We will explore preparing for the inevitable security disruptions, gaining executive sponsorship, developing campus relationships, delivering security awareness messages, and measuring your program's maturity. The goal of this seminar is to engage, challenge, and expand your thinking of what it takes to lead and sustain a successful information security program. We will discuss and potentially address security issues from your institution. The facilitators will introduce a variety of methods and case studies to engage you in meaningful and enjoyable ways. Planned exercises may include individual, small team, or large group work, as well as directed role-playing scenarios.

OUTCOMES: Gain hands-on experience with common issues and challenges * Learn effective communication and reporting strategies * Actively practice a security pitch to an executive
