Presentation #1

Ira Winkler, CISSP

Advanced Persistent Security

Ira will be presenting material from his latest book entitled: “Advanced Persistent Security: A Cyberwarfare Approach to Implementing Adaptive Enterprise Protection, Detection, and Reaction Strategies” which was co-written with Araceli Gomes. The presentation will cover secure network design and implementation, including authentication, authorization, data and access integrity, network monitoring, and risk assessment. Using such recent high profile cases as Target, Sony, and Home Depot, Ira will discuss information security risks, identifies the common threats organizations face, and presents tactics on how to prioritize the right countermeasures.

We will have copies of Ira’s book available for purchase in which he can autograph for you. You can also purchase it digitally or in softcover through Amazon through this link.

Ira Winkler, CISSP is President of the Internet Security Advisors Group. He is considered one of the world’s most influential security professionals, and has been named a “Modern Day James Bond” by the media. He obtained this status by identifying common trends in the way information and computer systems are compromised. He did this by performing penetration tests, where he physically and technically “broke into” some of the largest companies in the World and investigating crimes against them, and telling them how to cost effectively protect their information and computer infrastructure. He continues to perform these penetration tests, as well as assisting organizations in developing cost effective security programs. Ira also won the Hall of Fame award from the Information Systems Security Association.

Presentation #2

Sean Walls, Director Cyber Security Solutions

Risk Management for the 21st Century

Managing security risk has moved from an IT problem, to a boardroom problem. Effective risk management has evolved and needs to be understood from in a business context, not only from a technical perspective. We will review risk management holistically, in a way that makes sense to executives as well as security managers. We will review the various components of effective risk and security management including; executive buy-in, steering committees, risk assessments, risk treatment, control objectives, monitoring and metrics, along with compliance and governance. This presentation is intended to provide a high-level overview of the process required to adequately protect a company’s data, systems, and business.

Mr. Walls has nineteen (19) years of experience in information technology and information security. He currently provides executive oversight and direction to the Presidio Cyber Security Division, which is responsible for delivering high-level security consulting services to Presidio¹s customer both domestically and abroad. He has provided consulting services to hundreds of clients over the years in the areas of governance, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, strategy development, program management, architecture design and technology implementation.
