Cybersecurity risks and controls around Cloud environments
Talk One Speaker:
Rob Babb
Talk Abstract:
Virtualization, and by extension Cloud Computing, have created amazing benefits for IT in the forms of increased agility and efficiency with a decrease in spending on physical infrastructure, power, & cooling. With these great operational benefits also comes a new concentration of risk by the addition of the Hypervisor and all of the corresponding tools for management and automation. During this discussion we will examine the typical IT journey towards Cloud Computing and map back how the existing security & compliance controls available in the industry today may or may not provide adequate compensating controls for that risk. Finally we will discuss the gaps in those control sets and how an IT organization can work to augment their existing controls to fill in the gaps and once again provide a secure and compliant IT infrastructure.

Talk Two:
NIST-based Information Risk Management Essentials and Maturity
Talk Two Speaker:
Bob Chaput
Talk Abstract:
Even with the dramatic increase in the number and severity of data breaches in all industries, including huge increases in healthcare organizations, too many organizations are still disengaged from holistic, mature information risk management. Many organizations are stuck in a tactical-technical-spot-welding loop when they should be moving to adoption of an industry-standard framework and a more strategic-business-architectural approach. Organizations must begin to mature their information risk management programs, and the use of a risk management maturity model can assist in that improvement, allowing an organization to have its methods and processes assessed according to management best practices, against a clear set of external benchmarks. In this session, we will cover the essentials of establishing, operationalizing and maturing an information risk management program using the NIST Security Process as a starting point.
1. Speak the “language of risk”
2. Describe the 4-Step NIST Information Risk Management Process
3. Access NIST and other resources to assist organizations in Information Risk Management
4. Explain the essential steps of establishing, operationalizing and maturing an information risk management program
