Security Certifications Are No Longer Adequate Assurance of Protection

Right now, the threat landscape for companies and their information is unlike anything most business unit leaders have seen before.

Organizations are having sensitive data stolen every day, and suddenly everybody bears some responsibility for maintaining security in their area of responsibility.

Corporate data is at stake, and so are the jobs of many in charge.
So who is really in charge of security now?
And how can they “Manage It”?

In this one-hour presentation, Mike Beevers, CISSP, (LinkedIn profile) walks us through where your head should be if you touch anything in your organization that’s connected to sensitive information.

Mike will touch on why:

  • The security certifications of the last 15 years are no longer adequate assurance of protection,
  • Why we are seeing the traditional IT security role dissolve into a need for someone more literate in:
    • overall security goals,
    • more connected to the business side of incident avoidance,
    • risk management and
    • intelligent response when something happens.

Presented by: Eclipse Project Portfolio Management
Duration: 1 hour 1 PDUs Credits: Category C 1 PDU- Free PDU

Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is a strategic decision making approach aimed at maximizing overall returns on project investments. By focusing on the “right” projects, it is expected that there will be improved organization alignment to strategic plans as well as optimized utilization of financial and human resources.

Unfortunately, there is a significant amount of misinformation in the marketplace about PPM and many organizations that have attempted to implement these practices have failed. Of course, vendors stand ready to “help” unsuspecting executives with snake oil claims of “silver bullet” process or tool purchases to achieve PPM nirvana.

This webinar will provide you with a solid grounding of PPM principles – costs, benefits, critical success factors and lessons learned. These will help you decide whether pursuing PPM improvement is a valuable and realistic goal for your organization. This presentation will also improve your knowledge of the PPM lifecycle and provide you with the key decisions and approaches necessary to launch a successful PPM initiative.

Who should attend this webinar?
C-Level Management, IT Directors and Managers or Directors of PMOs

As technology becomes more mission critical, organisations are increasingly looking proactively for ways to leverage new technologies to drive employee productivity and innovation.

The challenge is that in order to truly drive business performance with technology, IT and the business need to be able to work collaboratively to achieve results.

IT needs to be able to develop the right relationships and communicate with different stakeholders from a business, not technical perspective. As a result, the transformation of the IT department has become a top level priority for many leading organizations.

In this 1 hour  webinar Bart Vandermosten, (LinkedIn profile) Director of Business Transformation will discuss the skills and knowledge required to help IT perform in this new environment, and will share industry best practices for making the transition.
