Daniel Ziesmer, will be presenting at the 9th Annual Colorado Springs Peak Cyber Symposium being held in Colorado Springs, CO, September 3-5.

Daniel will be presenting the topic, “Policies, Programs, and Procedures, Oh My!

Despite the apparent ubiquity of policy, program, and procedural documents in cybersecurity programs, the simple truth is that far too many companies do them incorrectly and incompletely.  The problem is further exacerbated when it comes to creating documents that navigate and satisfy the complex interactions between practical execution, technology infrastructure oversight, risk management, and the ability for them (and their work products) to satisfy regulatory and compliance requirements.  In this session, the presenter will share examples of the good, the bad, and the ugly, and discuss different practical ways to make documentation manageable, compliant, and auditable.  The session will be an open discussion – attendees are even encouraged and welcomed to bring their own examples to share with the group (properly redacted).

The conference is free for academia, military/government personnel (all those with a .mil or .gov e-mail address), and members of a Colorado-based ISSA chapter. Otherwise, the conference is $250 for everyone else!

Here’s a little hint: If you are already a member of ISSA and another chapter, you can add the COS Chapter to this year’s current membership for a mere $25 so you too can effectively attend ‘free’.  In fact, becoming an ISSA member and COS Chapter together is only $120.  Becoming a member of ISSA costs less than 50% of registration, and gives you all the benefits of membership too!
