Secure-iffy in the News

by Erin Warhol, Shae Armstrong, and Ben Skoglund | at MinneBar 13 | 2:00 – 2:50 in Georgia | View Schedule

Data breaches, social media harvesting, cats and dogs living together... mass data mishandling! While impressive technical tools exist to help grow the security maturity of organizations, we are finding that policy and procedure are the biggest weaknesses. This will be an energetic, non-technical discussion of the learning opportunities that are so abundant in the news these days.

We'll talk about:

  • Basic best practices for information security
  • What organizations can learn from the recent MASSIVE fails in the news (e.g. Equifax, Facebook...)
  • Q/A
  • All levels
