Topic: IT Assurance Across System Boundaries

IT administrators and security experts face a daunting challenge assuring information security and privacy across numerous interconnected systems, many of which they may not exercise authority over.  These integrated entities, such as vendor applications and industrial control systems, are housed both on-premise and in the cloud.  In this presentation, David will outline the challenge of providing security assurance across system boundaries, show some examples of breaches across system boundaries, and explore risk management techniques for dealing with this seemingly intractable problem.

Speaker: David Trepp, M.S., Partner, IT Assurance

A technology entrepreneur since 1989, David has led over 1,300 comprehensive information security penetration test engagements for satisfied customers across all major industries throughout the United States and abroad. He has given dozens of presentations to audiences nationwide, on a variety of information security topics. David, a US Army veteran, is founder and CEO of Info@Risk (now BPM), a leading comprehensive penetration test firm. David has worked in information security with banking, law enforcement, government, healthcare, utilities, and commercial organizations since 1998.  When not at work testing security controls, David exercises his risk management skills as an avid rock climber and long-distance cyclist.
