People…the Social Engineer’s Dream

Data breach revelations are commonplace in news headlines and social media today. The development of new and expanded breach notification laws ensures the public will encounter breach disclosures frequently in the future. To understand why these breaches have become a societal norm there must be an awareness of the fundamental factor, in particular the human contribution. Social engineering, is by definition the psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information they would normally keep to themselves.

Contracting for Security

Many organizations, regardless of size or regulatory obligations, rely on contract language to ensure obligations with their third parties. In the United States, contract enforcement still provides the best route for financial recovery following a data breach and including the right contractual terms can safeguard your organization.

Information security personnel, both in private and public organizations, are increasingly asked to draft, review or negotiate contractual terms for business customers and third parties. Teams are left wondering what security terms to include, how much detail is required and which other legal terms should also be reviewed to manage information security risk for your organization.

Are non-members and guests welcome at meetings and events?

Yes, we welcome individuals at large from the security community to join us for any of our events. We simply ask that, after experiencing personally the value of our community at two events, individuals consider joining ISSA for the additional benefits that membership provides.

Why do we have to register to attend meetings and events?

Besides assisting the board with planning logistics for our events, registering for meetings and events, then checking in when you attend, provides you with self-service documentation you can print out to support your CPE credits if you are audited.
