Cybersecurity Frameworks: Theory and Application – Philadelphia Day 1

The first day will focus on theory presentation with a focus on two common security frameworks (NIST and C2M2) alongside custom material (developed over 9 years and unavailable elsewhere) to provide students with the necessary cybersecurity, framework, and communication theory required to make practical improvements to their cybersecurity environments, including, potentially:

  • More effective management of the organizational behaviors outside of the CISO shop that lead to increased cybersecurity risk
  • Enhancement of the functioning and efficacy of security-specific programs and organizations
  • Development of appropriate, actionable metrics for all organizational levels, including the executive
  • Increased assurance that critical business success criteria are met despite ongoing cyber risk
  • More comprehensive plans to defend against specific external threats
  • Improved management of Perception, Communication, Scale, and Uncertainty risks associated with cybersecurity
  • Improved partnership and collaboration within and across organizations, public and private
  • Reduced gap between “Compliance” and “Security”
  • Easier, more effective development of custom formal and informal frameworks to bridge gaps between disciplines

The class will be tailored, within the constraints of the topic areas, to the backgrounds and needs of attendees.
