CIPS Presents “Cyber Security: Local Boundaries in an Open World”

With the increase in global security risks and threats to private/public/corporate information, the cyber security community’s ability to maintain a constant state of readiness is more critical than ever. Companies all over the world have spent billions of dollars in response to data breaches. What has been the impact of these threats in our own local community? Join us at our next dinner meeting on Tuesday, October 16th - 5:30 P.M. at the Norwood Hotel where you will be able to learn, share, and connect with your colleagues in the IT community about these issues. See registration details below. The theme for this dinner meeting is “Cyber Security: Local Boundaries in an Open World” and will include perspectives from our own local IT community. For this event, we have assembled a panel of senior IT Security leaders representing public and private enterprises including provincial government, global corporations, and small and medium-size business. The panel includes: Patrick Hoger, Chief Information Security Officer, Information Protection Centre, Manitoba Government; Colin McDonald, Chief Information Security Officer, Great West Life; and Chris Dunn, Information Security Consultant, C.H. Dunn Consulting. This will be an open information exchange between members of the panel where they will share their perspectives and views on a variety of questions dealing with these challenges. We will examine how these leaders address these issues within their respective organizations, are dealing with the threats and risks to critical information and infrastructure, the inevitable changes and challenges in managing cyber security, the business and organizational drivers, as well as the types of solutions being recommended and deployed to address the multitude of security and privacy challenges such as:

·         BYOD and mobile proliferation
·         Cloud and multi-tenancy
·         Data protection
·         Growth of federated Identity Management
·         Anytime/everywhere information resource provisioning
