Information Security Roundtable

The "Information Security Roundtable" presentation & resources are available on the Security Committee Resources page at http://www.nysforum.org/committees/security/resources.aspx.

Session Overview

Every organization requires a strategic information security assurance plan and risk-management framework approach to meet its goals and objectives - but with so much to do, so many moving parts and so little time and resources, what's an ISO to do? Come spend a reviving and enriching half-day with your information security professional colleagues and industry experts at the NYS Forum's "Information Security Roundtable!"

The roundtable will present numerous key topics (see list below) in a lively, purpose-driven discussion format designed to promote active sharing of ideas, best practices and initiatives! It's primary objectives are to help identify and inspire organizations to leverage/reuse proven information security strategies and practices that help address today's dynamic and challenging landscape, and create collaborative linkages between those who "have the experience & know-how" and those who "want to know more" about these key topics!
