Writing Effective Policies Part I

How do you write an effective policy that actually works?  A coworker and I recently published a whitepaper.  The goal of the paper was to explain how to write an effective policy by providing both good and bad examples.  Click on the link below to access the white paper. 




This is one in a series we are producing, so I will keep everyone posted on the next document.

Upcoming Privacy and Security Panel in Las Vegas

For those who are interested I will be sitting on a panel in
Las Vegas on May 22nd.  The topic is “Privacy and Security” Are you Ready!.


This should be a good discussion!  The other panel members are from the FBI and a CPP (Certified Privacy Professional).  The audience is geared more toward auditors, but I will also be talking about how hackers access the data as well as how to secure your privacy data.  See the link below for the 29th annual Gaming Conference.  The time slot for the panel is 10:30 to 11:20am.




I will post another reminder the week before the conference.  If you are going to be there and have any specific topics you want to discuss let me know and I will see if I can accommodate.

The NYC ISM-Community is proud to announce that we will be serving the tri-state area initially and not just NYC.  This chapter we will be open to scheduling meetings in New Jersey, NYC, and CT if the attendance validates the need.  In the opening stages of this chapter our first major task is to establish a chapter board with the overall responsibility of operating the chapter.  Therefore, as the chair of the NYC ISM-Community chapter I am proud to announce our newest addition as a board member Rohyt Belani.  Rohyt is a well know security professional in the tri-state area and brings a great deal of experience to the leadership of this chapter. 


Welcome aboard Rohyt!


In the next few weeks we should be announcing additional board members and provide the schedule for the kick off meeting.
