ISACA / ISC2 Joint Chapter Event: ISACA Cybersecurity Nexus Program
Name: ISACA / ISC2 Joint Chapter Event: ISACA Cybersecurity Nexus Program
Date: August 25, 2017
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM CDT
Speakers: Don Baham, Kraft Technology Group, LLC Session Description: Cyber attacks are increasing in sophistication and frequency, yet the shortage of skilled technical professionals has continued to grow exponentially. How has this gap continued to widen, leaving organizations at risk? The workforce has been traditionally focused on a more generalized security education and compliance-based concepts versus advanced, technical cyber security training. Organizations lacking skilled technicians are unable to handle inevitable breaches, properly detect and contain the damage, identify weaknesses in their environments and respond appropriately. Skilled cyber security professionals are hard to come by, and it’s even harder for employers to validate that they have the actual technical savvy and skill to do the job from day one. ISACA Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) is designed to help fortify and advance the industry by educating, training and certifying a stronger, more informed workforce that can keep organizations and their information secure—now and in the future. CSX is the only “one-stop shop” for all things cyber security. You’ll find just the right guidance, training and educational events to meet your needs, no matter where you are in your career. In this session, Don will lead a discussion on the CSX Certification path including the Cybersecurity Fundamentals Certificate, the CSX Practitioner Certification, and the steps beyond. This will include a Q&A with a chapter member who passed the CSX Practitioner cert last year. Speaker Bio: Don Baham is president of Kraft Technology Group, LLC (KTG), an affiliate of KraftCPAs PLLC.
