Date: August 2017 Chapter Meeting
Topic: Why Everyone Gets Their Security Policies Wrong
Speaker: Mark Heckman, Ph.D., CISSP, CISA
Synopsis: A security policy is the definition of what it means to say a system is "secure". The policy is the starting point for determining threats, requirements, and controls, yet many organizations that claim to have a security policy get this essential element wrong, so their security is incomplete. In this talk, Heckman will clarify what a security policy is, why starting with a good policy is so important, and describe a variety of types of policies commonly used in different systems and organizations.
