Topic: “What really matters in Cyber Security nowadays?”
Speaker: Mike Davis, CISO, in alliantgroup’s Houston national office
With all the news on cyber security attacks, ransomware, data breaches, etc, how do we simplify all that "FUD" (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt = scare tactics) into what really matters, and what's a reasonable security posture to aim for... and who says so?
At our meeting next Monday, our speaker will provide his perspectives on all that, references, etc. - plus offer helpful resources in a variety of cyber risk areas. In the meantime, you can get a head start on the topic reviewing the two articles below.
Mike Davis is the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) in alliantgroup’s Houston national office. As the CISO he operationalizes Data Security, Privacy Compliance, & Risk Management while advising leadership on protecting critical information resources and managing an enterprise cyber security portfolio.
