The Magnificent Seven
Dan Hadaway, CISA, CISM, CRISC, Infotex
How can “mean hombres” be stopped from attacking and bullying the bank while keeping the community modern and prosperous? That is the question Yul Brenner and his team had to answer in The Magnificent Seven, and it is the same question technology, security, fraud and cybersecurity managers have to answer as a part of their day-to-day job. The answer: teaching the town to protect itself while encouraging it to be modern will keep it prosperous.

Reporting Critical Information Security Areas Upstream
Buzz Hillestad, SBS Cybersecurity, Madison, SD
One of the most critical aspects of any information security program is communication and sharing information. It is especially true with Executives and the Board of Directors, who need to be educated and informed on all aspects of information security to ask better questions and make appropriate decisions. If the top level of the organization better understands the risks and the impact potential, it helps build an improved information security culture throughout the organization. So what do you need to report upstream to help the Board and Executives understand your ISP and risk?
