Setting Up an Information Security Program On a Shoestring Budget

Have you been tasked with setting up an information security program? Do you have limited budget to do so? Then this session is for you!

Information security is a constantly changing field. At one time, it was generally accepted that all you needed was a firewall, anti-virus solution and user access controls. Today, compromises are likely and attack vectors are many. We also need to consider the human equation. People are increasingly becoming the means to compromise data and systems. Where do we start? Where do we focus our limited resources?

A roadmap will be presented that will allow you to successfully establish an information security program in your organization. We will identify free and low cost tools that you can use to reduce your workload and focus on the important security events.
