  • JUNE 2020 Meeting: PRIVACY

    Online event

    This will be another REMOTE MEETING.

    Every organization today is in some state of digital transformation. While the understanding of security needs in the digital age has matured significantly in the last 2 decades, the implication for data privacy and in particular, its interaction with security, are still not well understood. As data regulations and laws continue to evolve, here in the U.S. and globally, organizations require increased understanding of privacy requirements and their impact to technology solutions. In this session, Caitlin and Cathy will share the evolution of privacy, discuss key privacy topics like Privacy by Design and the NIST Privacy framework, share their perspectives of the overlap between Security and Privacy and highlight the criticality of understanding the current implications of data privacy today.

    Caitlin Fennessy is the Research Director at the International Association of Privacy Professionals. Caitlin also leads the IAPP’s privacy engineering initiative and serves as an in-house privacy expert. Prior to joining the IAPP, Caitlin was the Privacy Shield Director at the U.S. International Trade Administration. Caitlin joined ITA in 2009 and spent the next ten years working on international privacy and cross-border data flow policy issues. Caitlin served an adjunct professor of international privacy law at the University of Maine School of Law in 2016 and 2015 and at the University of New Hampshire School of Law in 2014. Before her time at ITA, Caitlin worked in the National Security Division of the Office of Management and Budget and with the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Caitlin has a master’s degree in public affairs from Princeton University and a bachelor’s degree in social policy from Northwestern University. https://www.linkedin.com/in/caitlin-fennessy/

  • Hands-on how-to configure NAC event!

    Webex - Online

    Due to circumstances beyond our control the March meeting is changed.

    As many companies, organizations, and families make decisions to reduce their potential exposure to COVID-19, we are being forced to follow suit.

    The good news is that we are still going to hold our monthly meeting, only we are going to change the topic and make it a virtual meeting.

    We are polishing the details on the topic, but right now it is going to be focused on preparing your business/network for remote access, including Bandwidth, VPN, and Multifactor considerations. We will then open it up for discussion. Fortinet will remain our presenter, as well as we will have other experts on Infrastructure, Consulting, as well as our network of professionals all here to discuss and share experiences and suggestions.

    We hope you make the time and join us to learn and share from the comfort of your home. We are taking advantage of Cisco’s Free Webex offer so we can get some face time.
