What to Expect When Your Applications Are Being Pentested
by: Mike Woolard

How to Win at Compliance, and Influence Auditors
by: Tom Kopchak

If you’re here, your organization inevitably is responsible for managing and conforming to numerous regulatory and compliance requirements.  All too often, you will find yourself at the mercy of an individual auditor’s interpretation of these compliance requirements. As security professionals, helping our customers meet compliance requirements through the use of security reporting tools, we can definitely relate to this scenario.

This presentation will focus on various interpretations of compliance requirements that we have seen from different customers working with different auditors across a wide range of industries.  Our intent will be to draw attention to these differences, and seek to ultimately encourage compliance efforts to be less subjectively and more objectively focused.

  • Tom Kopchak is the Director of Technical Operations at Hurricane Labs, where he pretends to manage a team of network and system engineers, but is still an engineer and technology geek at heart. He holds a Master’s degree in Computing Security from the Rochester Institute of Technology, and has spoken at numerous infosec conferences around the country. When he is not working with computers, Tom enjoys composing, music improvisation (Acts of Music), and playing both the piano and organ.

Don’t forget to come early, starting at 6:00 PM, for food and soda, sponsored by TrustedSec.

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