October 2017 Chapter Meeting


While we encourage all members to attend, this event will also be available via live streaming (unlisted YouTube channel, we will share the link prior to the meeting).  You can also view the presentations after the event in the chapter member content area of the chapter website.  As such, in registering, you will be asked if you will attend or view via live stream.  Please be accurate as we rely on this number for planning on food.  Also, please do not register for the live viewing option if you do not plan to view it, as there is a per person charge for each registration.

Topic: Hot Topics in Security Challenges

Securing & Auditing Your Network
Kim Jones, Director, Cybersecurity Education Consortium, Arizona State University

We have seen the definition of “network” – and particularly, its borders -- continue to evolve as technologies advance.  Adequately securing a network infrastructure in the face of cloud technologies and software-defined networks has become a more daunting endeavor.  In this session we will discuss how a principles-based approach to securing and auditing networks can simplify if not remove the perceived complexity of these tasks.

The Killer Next Door – Managing Third-Party Risk
James Christiansen, VP Information Risk Management, Optiv

The sheer volume and cost of onsite security risk assessments of third parties is daunting.  With the board and regulators pushing for results how can you extend your security practices to your third parties? This session details how to establish a third party IT risk management program using firsthand experience.  The speaker will discuss what works, what doesn’t, and how to change the paradigm.
