Protecting the Cyber Enterprise
|We have another great conference planned for this year. We’re excited to have Michele Robinson, CISO of the state of California, as our keynote speaker. We will also have a keynote panel with members of the California Cybersecurity Task Force, moderated by Rob Stroud, ISACA International President. Our Tuesday general session will feature Dr. Ron Ross, NIST, speaking on “The National Conversation No One Wants to Have: A New Paradigm for Cyber Resiliency.” We will also have members of the international board of ISACA speaking throughout the program.
The pre-conference workshops include the popular CRISC review boot camp and COBIT5 Foundations–with the ability to write the exam after the workshop. The chapter is excited to also offer the Cybersecurity CSX Fundamentals workshop, which is consistently sold out at ISACA events, at a substantially reduced rate. This workshop will prepare attendees to write the exam to obtain the CSX Fundamentals certificate.
This year promises to be exciting and features great speakers on cybersecurity–which is top of mind for all. Register early since there is limited seating for popular sessions and to get the early-bird rate!
Monday Keynote: California is home to more than 38 million people and considered one of the largest economies in the world. We are a very diverse population consisting of tech innovators in the Silicon Valley and across the state, aerospace projects at more than 3 NASA centers located in California, the entertainment industry capital, the leader in small business development, venture capitalists, and with over half of the fruit production in the US. Every one of those businesses and consumers need technology to be competitive while operating in a secure environment. Investments in the secure use of technology is paramount to sustained growth in our state. Join Michele as she discusses the cyber threat, enterprise risk management strategy and how the California Cybersecurity Task Force is chartered with advancing California’s cyber security posture.
Tuesday General Session: “The National Conversation No One Wants to Have: A New Paradigm for Cyber Resiliency”
The increasing complexity of the IT infrastructure supporting our public and private sector organizations is becoming the number one threat to the economic and national security interests of the United States. Join Dr. Ron Ross as he discusses how developing effective cybersecurity and risk management strategies that promote trustworthy and resilient information systems and networks is the key to future mission and business success.
