Innovation and Technology, Escape From RSA

Earlier this year an assessment was requested and conducted on a company because they could not find a rogue device on their network. The assessment was halted and a meeting ensued between HR, Legal and the assessment team. It was suggested by the team that the organization update their BYOD policy. The rogue system was determined to be a sexual device on their network and they figured it would be riskier to pinpoint the device and user than the recommended solution. The business was surprised, stunned and thankful for the discretion.

In another instance, a CISO from a 43-billion-dollar health care provider responded to a serious incident involving two of their physicians. The doctors had purchased and integrated Google Glasses with a collaboration platform that extended their exam room environment with a medical academic institution in India. The doctors performed diagnosis and treatment on patients who had no knowledge of what the technology was being used for and had not provided consent for broadcasting their treatment with the students in India. The lawsuit is still pending…

Today, CIOs, CISOs and Compliance Officers are struggling to keep up with the risks that new and innovative technologies bring to the organization. With the onset of IoT and Artificial Intelligence (AI), organizations need to understand risk, lead and provide support for those that are charged with balancing the needs of the business with the conveniences that new technology brings.

This year we provide you with an opportunity to “escape from RSAC & buzzword bingo” and invite you to the ISSA CISO Executive Forum! We will provide a haven away from the vendor noise and product churn to have real conversations and get beyond the latest tech lingo.

This is a CISO and security practitioner-driven event focused on benefiting our CISO members and qualified guests. The ISSA CISO Executive Forum is your chance to escape from the blizzard of buzzwords to meet up with your cyber-security and risk management peers, industry experts, and specially selected security vendors in a relaxed and confidential environment. We discuss real security programs, share real-world scenarios, and learn from each other.

We have brought back our very popular VC (Venture Capital) Panel session into this year’s event as well.

Finally, attendees at the March 2019 event will have a chance to help shape the content and format for future meetings of the ISSA CISO Executive Forum in 2019 and beyond!
