Information Security In an Insecure World


Joint Seminar

Approved for 6 ICRM, IGP, and CIP credits! And up to 12 IAPP CPEs!

The importance of information security has been steadily rising and has caught the full attention of the C suite. Data breaches, new privacy regulations, and reports of rogue actors hacking public and private networks fill the news, as anxiety about protecting our most sensitive information grows. At the same time, business and government leaders are increasingly interested in leveraging cloud-based collaboration tools, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and other emerging technologies – all of which present significant security challenges.

This all-day seminar, jointly hosted by the Metropolitan Maryland and Northern Virginia chapters of ARMA International, brings together world-class speakers and presentations to help you navigate information security in an insecure world. Information security experts from the private and public sector will address how to build a culture that minimizes risks of insider threat and external breaches; balancing security compliance with meeting the needs for collaboration, openness, and transparency; CUI/NIST compliance and management; and the future of information security and privacy. Join us for a compelling discussion of the road ahead!

8:30-10:00     Erik Winebrenner, VP, Chief Information Security Officer at Thermo Fisher Scientific

                        Building a Culture that Minimizes Risks

According to McKinsey & Company, a risk culture is defined as “the norms of behavior for individuals and groups within an organization that determine the collective ability to identify and understand, openly discuss and act on the organization’s current and future risks.” How does an organization overcome barriers to understanding and acting on risk? Once the C-suite buys into the need to develop a plan to address information security risks, how do we influence the thinking and behavior of our employees?

10:00-10:25  Break

10:25-11:55  Panel discussion: Angela Dingle, President & CEO, Ex Nihilo; Danyetta Magana, President, Covenant Security Solutions; E. Wayne Rose, PhD, IT Strategy, Security and Leadership Consultant

                        Balancing Security Compliance with the Need for Collaboration, Openness, and Transparency

Due to increasing privacy requirements and recent cyberattacks, the public and private sector alike have responded by implementing new cybersecurity regulations to detect data breaches, protect information, and safeguard against insider threats. With five generations in the workplace, the need for openness and collaboration cannot be overstated. Seasoned workers have valuable knowledge and historical perspectives to offer. Millennials want to bring their own devices, access the latest tools and work in collaborative workspaces. So, how do you find the right balance between mitigating cybersecurity risks and creating a workplace environment that fosters innovation and transparency? How much should you be investing in cybersecurity protections?

11:55-1:10     Lunch and Optional Speed Networking

Representatives from our top-level sponsors will spend 10 minutes at each table in an interactive format to discuss topics of mutual interest

1:10-2:40       Mark Riddle, Principal for CUI Program Oversight, National Archives and Records Administration

                        CUI/NIST Compliance and Management

This session will provide an overview of the Controlled Unclassified Information Program, address marking and safeguarding requirements, and provide an update on the status of agency implementation efforts.

2:40-3:05       Break

3:05-4:35       Kevin A. McGrail, Director of Business Growth, InfraShield

The Future of Information Security and Privacy

This presentation will provide a practical take on data security and privacy in 2020.  Are data security and privacy a source of growth in business?  Can they be a competitive differentiator? Kevin (aka KAM) will address “Zero Trust” network models and review the Practical Vision for a Zero Trust Network Model Implementation he wrote for a US federal agency. Along with discussing Zero Trust, he’ll define “toxic data” and challenge you to ask hard questions such as, "Do we really need this data?" and "Can we dispose of this data?"  After all, it's hard to have data compromised in a breach if you don't have the data. Finally, he will discuss the impact of some of the legal requirements for data security and privacy including those embodied in CCPA, GDPR, COPPA & HIPAA.
