Understanding Security Framework Seminars

The cybersecurity framework released in February and now the next question you often hear after that news broke is “what does this mean to me?”

One association is trying to help answer those questions as the New York Section of the International Society of Automation (ISA) is co-organizing a series of six free seminars and interactive panel discussions March 10-11 in the New York City area to explain the importance and implications of the U.S. Cybersecurity Framework.

All six of these educational events, “White House, DHS, & NIST Officials Present and Discuss the President’s Cybersecurity Framework,” will feature Samara Moore, White House director of Cybersecurity Critical Infrastructure Protection; Bob Kolasky, director of strategy and policy at the Department of Homeland Security; and Jon Boyens, senior advisor of information security at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Michael Coden, CISSP, vice president of ISA’s New York section, will moderate a panel discussion at each event.

The first seminar and panel discussion, from 8:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. March 10 at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering in Brooklyn, NY will be broadcast live through high definition web simulcast.

“Cyberattack presents a serious threat to US industry and infrastructure across all sectors, including energy, nuclear power, finance, healthcare, communications, transportation, water, oil, gas, chemicals, IT, defense and manufacturing,” said Coden, who also serves as a member of the ISA99 Cyber Security Standard Working Group.

Other co-organizers of the six events are ISACA (previously known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association), (ISC)2 and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). Funding for the events comes from NextNine Industrial Strength Cyber Security, The Sloan Foundation, Rockwell Automation, Dell, Sourcefire, New York University and Fordham University.
