1400 – 1450 Session 1: Building a Roadmap to Better Security - Purdue MEP/TCC - Gene Jones

This presentation is designed to provide small businesses with activities that can be implemented to improve their information security. It is based upon the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Interagency Report 7621 and uses the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (the “Cybersecurity Framework”) to organize the processes and tools that you should consider to protect your information. This is not a one-time process, but a continual, on-going set of activities. Although the Cybersecurity Framework was originally developed specifically for critical infrastructure organizations, it has proven useful to a variety of audiences as it provides a simple, common language for helping organizations to identify, assess, and manage cybersecurity risks. The specific mitigation activities in this presentation are grouped into the five broad categories of the Cybersecurity Framework; Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover.

Attendees will have the opportunity to leave with several products/solutions that they can immediately apply to there current business.
