Chapter Announcements

Chapter Meeting

The next meeting will be held on Tuesday April 3rd. Registration is at 10:30 am and the meeting starts at 11:00 am. Lunch will be at noon and during lunch we will have our second presenter.

Joe Wynn, CEO of Seiso, will present "Unlearn InfoSec's Ownership of Risk… Stick It Where It Belongs with the Right Risk Program!"

Why do organizations look to the Information Security Team for approval? The risks belong with the business and not Information Security. This presentation will discuss techniques to transition to a culture of risk-based decision making and away from Information Security having to say "No!". The right risk program can facilitate an informed decision-making process, so the business can "own" their risk decisions.>

We’ll take a break around noon to grab some lunch and then Ray Pascoe will do another one of his fabulous presentations. I'll let everyone know the topic of Ray's presentation as soon as I get it

After the presentation we will have the drawing for $50 AMEX gift card and lunch. The winner must be present to claim the prize or we will redraw. There will be 2 CPE given to attendees of the lunch meetings.
