I have been fortunate enough to once again be selected as a speaker for the RSA Conference in San Francisco. This years conference (2013) will be held at the Moscone Center from February 24 though March 1. I will be hosting a Peer2Peer (P2P) session entitled "To Report, or Not To Report, Will My Job Be At Risk? That is the Question" on Wednesday February 27, in Room 110, at 10:40. I am one of only 9 P2P sessions and attendance is restricted to only 25 people. If you want to participate be sure to get there early.
During this hour long session we will discuss ways to encourage our users to report policy violations and security incidents that they wittiness. If we can be informed of issues that arise early, before they get out of control, we can deal with them and mitigate further risk.
When was your last virus outbreak? Wouldn't it have been great if the very first user called and reported it before it spread? Do you have some war stories to share? Do you have some suggestions to bring? Is there something that does/does not work for your agency?
If you have any ideas please post them to comments or email me with them. I would love to hear your ideas and to see you there!
