The MN ISSA AfterHours event format is more casual and interactive than our regular chapter meetings and is designed to garner attendance from those not always able to make the regular chapter meetings; as well as those who simply enjoy discussion with their peers and industry leading thinkers. Come and join us for this special opportunity! We have two great topics and speakers for this event: Ivo Wiens Identifying Threat Management Requirements Detecting threats within environments has become an increasingly important part of a holistic enterprise security program. Whether outsourcing, insourcing or adapting to a hybrid model; CIO’s, CISO’s, Directors and Managers must understand the existing security landscape (the outward focus), their own tools and processes (the inward focus) prior to engaging any vendors. In this presentation, Ivo Wiens, Manager of Security Engineering for Seccuris, will identify the recommended methods for properly gathering requirements and arriving at the best decision for your specific environment. Ivo Wiens (CISSP, SCF, VCP) has several years in IT Information Security with a focus on security service delivery. Ivo’s knowledge, experience and business driven approach to the information security and operational assurance fields allows him to understand and address the issues facing both security analysts and executives today. Currently, Ivo is the Manager of Security Engineering for Seccuris, a leading security consulting, risk management, and managed security services firm.
