ISSA October Meeting

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

Our first presenter is Ken Dickey, Vice President of Business Development for Cadre. Ken will be presenting ‘A Path to GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Compliance‘. Learn what this means, who does this impact and when will this go into effect.

We’ll take a break around noon to grab some lunch then Randy Trzeciak, Technical Manager of CERT’s Enterprise Threat and Vulnerability Management Team and the Director of the CERT Insider Threat Center at Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute, will present ‘Insider Threat Mitigation: Lesson Learned from Actual incidents. The Insider Threat Center has been researching insider threats since 2001 and has amassed a corpus of over 2000 incidents where insiders have caused harm organizations. From these incidents, CERT has developed models of insider behavior (technical and non-technical) that describe how insider incidents tend to evolve overtime. This presentation will focus on lessons learned from actual incidents; provide best practices for the mitigation of insider threats; and provide strategies for building an effective insider risk program.

After the second 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.
