10 Reasons Your Security Education Program Sucks
by Kris French

Cynicism at the intentions and questionable competency of our users is rampant in information security.  We all know that a defense system is only as strong as its weakest point.  This point is too often our people.  It’s not right to blame them for this.  Security is our job, and if we recognize a weak point and don’t protect it, we’re not doing our jobs.  In this talk, I’ll walk you through the part of your job you’re ignoring, and how to do it better. 

Kris’s Bio:
Kris is the manager of application security, risk, and compliance at Hyland Software where he leads security training efforts for both technical and non-technical departments.  He is also founder of local information security group CleveSec which aims to bring security awareness outside of the echo chamber while still helping to sharpen the skills of those in the know.

Don’t forget to come early, starting at 6:00 PM, for pizza and pop.

Another great meeting from NEO Info Sec Forum – we hope to see you there!
