Indianapolis Section, August Meeting: Quality In Information Security Risk Management 264
Indianapolis Section, August Meeting: Quality In Information Security Risk Management
Regular August Meeting

Main Presentation Topic: Quality in Information Security Risk Management
Enterprise organizations are facing a serious issue - failure to understand what "good" information security and data privacy practices look like. 72% of all public-facing websites are in a compromised state. 63% of all U.S. executives expect their organization will face a significant data breach over the next 5 years. The Data Privacy landscape is far more complex than it was in 2017.  Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect on May 25, 2018 and many organizations are facing challenges meeting the needs of data subjects.  Other local laws are threatening to wreak similar havoc on organizations. The need to solve for quality in Information Security & Data Privacy is requiring a multi-pronged effort focused on best practices, metrics and organizational change.

As organizations move to the cloud and embrace new technologies - machine learning, edge computing and artificial intelligence - there is a greater number of level of knowledge and understanding in securing resources and preserving data privacy. By shifting responsibility to a third party vendor, many organizations are finding the problems only get worse. Many vendors are poorly prepared to manage information security risk and address data privacy challenges.  Risks are rising at a significant pace, both internally and externally, for many organizations.  

We are going to take a journey through the Information Security & Data Privacy challenges facing organizations and learn how to survive in the new world of Information Security Risk Management.
