ISSA-LA June Lunch Meeting

June 15, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:45 pm

Topic: Know Your Attack Surface Before It’s Too Late
Every choice an organization makes regarding their business processes, practices, and technology impacts their exposure to threats and the impact of those threats.  In order to effectively manage risk to information, organizations of all sizes must develop an understanding of their overall exposure to threats.  The ‘attack surface’ of an organization is the product of their business processes, technologies, as well as physical (and virtual) locations.  This presentation will describe the elements and factors that must be taken into consideration when assessing the attack surface.  The ‘information ecosystem’ will be described showing the relationship between business processes, information owners and custodians, supporting technologies, third parties, etc.
