ISSA-LA April Lunch Meeting

April 16, 2014 @ 11:30 am - 1:45 pm

Topic: Hacking Information Security Management

Using anecdotal evidence from security projects ranging from security awareness to PCI compliance, the goal is to share techniques that lead to high levels of success for security initiatives. This frequently starts with building your business case and communicating it’s value to company leadership. A number of techniques will be discussed regarding vendor management, such as who to partner with, and how to evaluate vendor offerings. Finally, the human element, how to work with your peers in Product, Legal, HR, Marketing, Finance, Audit and others to achieve your goals.
