Lunch & Learn - System & Organization Control Reporting

System and Organization Control Reporting: What your security conscious and heavily regulated business partners will be asking for shortly (if they aren’t already!). What is a SOC report? Why do I need one, and why won’t my auditors let me call this a “certification”?! How can I reduce the amount of time spent answering security questionnaires and complying with “right to audit” clauses from my customers? Join Dan Sembler of Cherry Bekaert as he discusses the specifics of what SOC-1 and SOC-2 reports are, who is asking for them and what they tell business partners about YOU. Dan will also walk you through the process of issuing your first SOC report and how to use them to evaluate your vendors. ** Please note this Lunch & Learn will be held in the E-Clinic, on the 2nd floor of the 310 S. Harrington HQ Building.**

Lunch & Learn - Applying a Framework to your IoT Security Design

Planning out an effective infrastructure security policy can be tough. With so many products, technologies and services to choose from, the decision maker can become quickly overwhelmed from option overload. Using Security Frameworks based on industry best practices, like the CISv7 CSC standards, can help you effectively plan and manage a security assessment plan that will lead to implementation of the most effective security controls to mitigate risks in your IOT infrastructure. Don’t feel like you are pulling at straws when it comes to making solid security decisions. Start with a plan, follow it and implement it correctly, and your overall confidence in your team and the security controls you deploy to protect your infrastructure will increase. Join Mike Louis, Technology Director at NWN, to learn more about the concept of using frameworks to plan an effective set of strategies in this session. ** Please note this Lunch & Learn will be held in the E-Clinic, on the 2nd floor of the 310 S.
