(ISC)2 Knowledge Transfer Event

“Just trust everyone and we will be fine, right?” 


Why can’t you simply trust your employees to do the right thing? What benefit to the business comes from technical security controls?  You have likely been asked to reduce risk and action for every funded project at once. Join former PayPal Security Architect, Scott Carlson, in this exploratory session, where he will show attendees how to:

  • Realistically consider which projects can reduce risk most quickly
  • Determine which layers of security are most important
  • Bring peace-of-mind and improvements to your information security posture through privilege management, vulnerability control, over-communicating, and by reducing the attack surface
