Presentation Topic:

There is widespread recognition about the benefits of implementing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF). As adoption grows, many organizations are looking for guidance about how they can strengthen security in phases using risk-based prioritization along with the CSF.

For insights into ways you can effectively address this challenge, MS-ISAC encourages you to join members of the City of Portland (Oregon) InfoSec team for a live, case study webcast, "A Prioritized Approach to Implement the NIST CSF using the CIS Critical Security Controls,” 2pm ET, June 22, 2016.

Topics Covered:

  • Prioritizing control implementation based on your specific needs
  • Structuring budget requests on risk-based priorities
  • Developing a multi-year roadmap to strengthen security
  • Your questions during live Q&A

During the session, Christopher Paidhrin, Information Security Manager and Brian Ventura, Information Security Architect from City of Portland will share their experience implementing NIST CSF in-conjunction with the risk-based prioritization offered by the CIS Critical Security Controls. Chris and Brian have developed an in-depth planning tool for strengthening security in phases, which they will review during the webinar. All webinar attendees will be given access to the tool following the session.

The content presented will be most useful for CISOs and InfoSec professionals responsible for evaluating and optimizing the effectiveness of ongoing information security practices in state, local, tribal, and territorial government organizations.

Format of Webcast:

This session will feature an interactive Powerpoint presentation accompanied by audio.
