On March 20, 2015, the South Florida Chapter of the Information System Security Association (ISSA) had our biennial Security Conference.
Each time we do these conferences, we try to have a theme. The one I had come up with was regarding Cloud Security, as that seems to be a big concern. So I called it "Pirates in the Cloud: Security Issues, Threats, and Trends in Cloud Computing". We encouraged people to submit proposed that tied into that, and would fall into one of 3 broad categories: technical, management, law/compliance.
With a sort of "Air Pirates" idea, we developed some interesting name badges and plaques. I wanted to get away from the standard conference stuff.
In additional to our presentations, we had a pair of keynote presentations and a CISO forum at the end, followed by drinks, networking, and awards.
Our breakfast keynote was done by Ira Winkler, the International President of ISSA.
Our lunch keynote fell thru, so we had a panel discussion with several of our high level attendees.
These were the sessions we had:
Integrating Threat Intelligence into Security & Incident Response Programs
API Security for Mobile, IoT, and the Enterprise
HIPAA for the Security Professional
A Case for being forgotten
The PCI DSS, A QSA Perspective
Universal/Central Logging and Monitoring in a Cloud Environment
IDS+Honeypots Making Security Simple
Hard Facts on Soft Skills: Develop Your Personal Brand To Advance Your Career
Using data encryption to achieve HIPAA Safe Harbor in the Cloud
Overall, a great event. I will be updating this posting with some pictures soon.
If you missed it, you missed a great event.
