Session I Chapter Annual General Meeting & Chapter Officer Elections

Session II Better Together: Why IS Leaders Make Good Privacy Champions

In this presentation, I will break down the fundamentals of the average information security and risk management program and compare and contrast those fundamentals to that of the average privacy program. The result: it might surprise IS leaders to find out just how much they have in common with privacy leaders.

Speaker: Mike Pedrick

Mike Pedrick, a 20-year veteran of the IT/IS space, left an executive leadership role more than ten years ago to help bring the gospel of information security, risk management, and security/privacy by design to organizations in all industries and of all shapes and size via his consulting work. He provides training and mentorship to cybersecurity professionals as a longtime educator, including his work as the Certification Coordinator for the ISACA Denver Chapter.

Session III Cyber Threats & Trends as Observed by the FBI  [Will be in-person only]

During the session, FBI Special Agent Jessica Nye will discuss financially motivated and nation state cyber actors as well as the Insider Threat to include how they are gaining access to systems and best ways to mitigate from these threats.

Speaker: Jessica Nye, Special Agent, FBI
