NSF-ISR’s Director of Custom Audit Programs, Tony Giles, alongside Rhia Dancel, NSF-ISR Technical Scheme Manager, will be presenting at the NIST Cybersecurity Risk Management Conference taking place November 7-9, 2018 in Baltimore, MD.

Their presentation Managing Hidden Cybersecurity Risks will explore best practices that organizations can take in managing and understanding their risk environment. These best practices have been captured through global feedback and have allowed organizations to continually monitor risk probability, impact and treatment.

The presentation, taking place on Wednesday, November 7 from 4:00 – 4:45pm, will focus on top identified risks and feedback on best practices for risk treatment. Attendees will hear how organizations can utilize their risk assessment to focus on the development and prioritization of their POAMs (plan of action and milestones).

Tony and Rhia will also cover hidden risks organizations face and provide solutions on how to look into and treat those risks. The presenters will use real-world examples and demonstrations to support organizations’ continual risk improvement practices.

Overall, this conference will provide participants with:

  • An opportunity to learn about the current state of cybersecurity risk management and innovative approaches that are being deployed
  • A forum to voice their opinions on and discuss today’s most vital cybersecurity risk management issues and solutions

NSF-ISR is looking forward to being a part of this conference and demonstrating our information security expertise. For more details on information security/information technology, visit www.nsf-isr.org.
