Prioritizing Your Security Program

  • Keith Palmgren
  • Wednesday, February 14th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Building a cybersecurity program is easy. Building a cybersecurity program that is effective is seriously hard! When faced with a seemingly insurmountable task, prioritization is vital. Investing time and money in the right place at the right time is the difference between success and being the next cyberbreach headline.

Whether you are new to cybersecurity or an old hand, you may feel lost in the storm. If so, this talk is for you. Cybersecurity's five (5) historic & current pitfalls that prevent organizations from building an effective IT Security platform will be discussed: Poor Passwords, Vulnerabilities, Malware/Crimeware, Insider Threat, and Mismanagement.

To build that effective cybersecurity platform in today's ever-changing information technology environment, organizations must prioritize and focus on five key principles that address those pitfalls. We must look at those critical security principles in new and different ways. 'The Principle of Least Privilege'; Authentication, Authorization, & Accountability (AAA); Confidentiality, Integrity, & Availability (CIA); Policy, Procedure, & Training (PPT); Hardening, Patching, & Monitoring (HPM); and Protect, Detect, & Respond (PDR).

Every organization needs a cybersecurity strategy. An effective strategy requires that you understand the problems as well as the solutions to those problems. Only then can you prioritize your limited cybersecurity resources. Managers and technicians alike will gain valuable insight in this non-technical talk.
