Security and Compliance Talk on August 20 in Kelowna

On August 20th in Kelowna I'm going to be presenting another Security and Compliance Talk for Businesses & Organizations.   

I received great feedback on my first such talk on April 15 so this second one will be even better, and a bit slower-paced.  It will be oriented more to business people and less to IT experts, but IT folks who are not security experts will still learn a lot.

Security and Compliance Talk for Businesses & Organizations

Information security and compliance (including privacy) for your business or organization involves more moving parts than you might think. This talk will provide an overview of the security and compliance space to help you decide which parts your organization needs and how to implement them.

Join us to learn how to secure and protect your business or organization and its information, people, processes, computers, devices, networks, cloud services, etc.

We'll cover this and more:
           security and privacy threats and resulting risks that your organization faces
           key controls to mitigate the risks
           frameworks and resources to help you create and manage your security, compliance, and privacy programs

Come join us at Perch Cafe on June 26.  Full information and registration here.

Registration is required for this event (as for all other OISG meetings).
