Speaker and Presentation Information

Presentation #1: Information Security Management 101: The Fundamentals -  Information security professionals interact with every facet of the business, and the information security manager is expected to demonstrate the proverbial “mile wide, inch deep” understanding of all things security-related. With the global marketplace continually expanding, the information security manager is expected to know (and do) more than ever before. How in the world (pun intended) will you able to cover all the necessary bases without burning out or losing your mind? This presentation will teach you how to do more with less by implementing and maintaining an ISO-based information security program. Whether you’ve been managing a security team for years, been managing a security team for days, or aspire to manage a security team in the near future, this presentation will give you the tools and knowledge you need to be successful in any organization.

Speaker: Jerod Brennen - By day, Jerod (@slandail) is CTO & Principal Security Consultant with Jacadis, an award-winning security solutions and services provider. By night, he’s a husband, father, writer, filmmaker, martial artist, and social media junkie. Jerod has over a decade of IT, infosec, and compliance experience. He spent years as an Information Security Specialist with American Electric Power before moving to Abercrombie & Fitch. At A&F, Jerod built out and managed the information security program. His team was tasked with security operations, PCI and SOX compliance, and identity and access management. His approach to infosec has two key tenets: don't be afraid to void warranties, and you shouldn't need to bypass security to get your work done.
