WS1–Cybersecurity Fundamentals

Why become a cyber security professional? The protection of information is a critical function for all enterprises. Cyber security is a growing and rapidly changing field, and it is crucial that the central concepts that frame and define this increasingly pervasive field are understood by professionals who are involved and concerned with the security implications of Information Technologies (IT). The CSX Fundamentals workshop is designed for this purpose, as well as to provide insight into the importance of cyber security, and the integral role of cyber security professionals. This workshop will also prepare learners for the CSX Fundamentals Exam.

WS3–Cybersecurity for Auditors

Vilius BenetisVilius Benetis, CISA, CRISC
Cybersecurity Professional, CEO

Cyber security focus is a requirement for any organization today, but how can a company know and understand what their cyber security posture is? A strong cyber security audit program with qualified, capable auditors and a robust work program or standard is a must. During this workshop, we will dig into the details of cyber security audit. We will evaluate the ISACA NIST Cybersecurity Framework Audit Work Program as well as various cyber security frameworks and tools including the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and the FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool.

WS4–Maintaining Focus on Data Protection & Privacy Beyond May 2018

Data Protection Project Manager & Advisor
Privacy Squad

GDPR becomes enforceable on 25 May 2018. Organisations must ensure there is continued focus on data protection beyond May 2018 and not just from a GDPR perspective. A robust operational lifecycle and governance framework is a pre-requisite for ensuring ongoing compliance with applicable legislation.

This interactive workshop will use a case study and involve working in groups to generate specific products/deliverables. Participants will benefit from sharing experiences and learning points not just from the instructor but also from each other.

After completing this workshop, participants will be able:

  • Articulate the competences, responsibilities and organisational structures needed to support the governance framework
  • Ensure their organisations' strategy for Data Protection is in place and relevant
  • Describe the key elements of the Operational Lifecycle and how to establish them
  • Know how to integrate ISO 27001 with other relevant standards and ensure their organisations’ privacy control framework is fit for purpose
