SEC566: Implementing and Auditing the Twenty Critical Security Controls - In-Depth

A session at Critical Security Controls International Summit 2013

In the last couple of years it has become obvious that in the world of information security, the offense is outperforming the defense. Even though budgets increase and management pays more attention to the risks of data loss and system penetration, data is still being lost and systems are still being penetrated. Over and over people are asking, "What can we practically do to protect our information?" The answer has come in the form of 20 information assurance controls known as the Consensus Audit Guidelines (CAG).

This course has been written to help those implementing or deploying a strategy for information assurance in their agency or organization by enabling them to better understand these guidelines. Specifically the course has been designed in the spirit of the offense teaching the defense to help security practitioners understand not only what to do to stop a threat, but why the threat exists and how later to audit to ensure that the organization is indeed in compliance with their standards.
