This may start quite the discussion, but it’s a viable argument that good Information Security practices are primarily about people, not technology.

Do you need help creating a security awareness program? Would you like to use social media to engage your audience?Would you like to integrate video or podcasts? Do you know how to best participate in National Cyber Security Awareness Month or Data Privacy Day?

Cherry Delaney (Purdue University) and Ben Woelk (Rochester Institute of Technology) presented a 3½ hour seminar at the EDUCAUSE Security Professionals/IT Enterprise Leadership Conference in Indianapolis on Thursday afternoon, May 17th.

The seminar is designed for security managers, CIOs, CISOs, ISO, and IT Communications professionals. (There is an additional fee.)

COMMENTS:

  • I don’t know how this presentation could be better. The content and presentation was very helpful for me. Maybe in another year or two I might have some hind-sight. It was nice to have them provide the structure and the abstract. it was also very beneficial to hear about measuring the effectiveness of this process is hit-or-miss so I know what to expect.
  • The formal training part was more helpful than I anticipated. Sometimes I think i know more than I do!
