Building a Successful Information Security Program: Simplicity and Awareness

Proposal Deadline: 5 p.m. Feb. 28, 2014

The planning committee for the 2014 Annual Security Officers Conference (ISOC) is looking for engaging speakers to present on relevant information security and e-privacy topics. The conference is scheduled for Monday through Wednesday May 19-21, 2014 at The Armstrong Center at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, GA. This is your opportunity to have a direct impact on the sessions that will be offered at this year's conference!

The purpose of the ISOC is to allow for interaction and the free flow of information and exchange of ideas among information security officers (ISOs) and information security (IS) and information technology (IT) practitioners from the University System of Georgia (USG), which includes the Shared Services Center (SSC), and the Georgia Public Library System (GPLS) and the Georgia Archives, as well as other federal, state, and local agencies and other organizations that ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and information systems. Conference participants include both new and experienced security practitioners, and attendees are encouraged to participate by sharing their experiences, knowledge, and expertise both formally by offering presentations and informally as conference participants.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Building a Successful Information Security Program: Simplicity and Awareness.” Suggested topics and ideas of interest include:

• IT/IS Governance
• Strategic Planning/Thinking
• Policy Development
• Compliance Management
• IT/IS Risk Management
• Incident Management/Incidence Response Teams
• Endpoint Management
• Enterprise Encryption
• Leadership

Presentations should focus on the innovative use of current and emerging technologies to proactively protect the information and information systems of, and build a culture of awareness and preparedness within, the USG and the SSC, the GPLS, and the Georgia Archives extended community, as well as other related entities in the state of Georgia. Session formats can be presentations, demonstrations, birds-of-a-feather sessions, and panel discussions. “How to” sessions are encouraged and always helpful, as are presentations about interoffice work flow that effectively use IS and e-privacy services.

The deadline for proposal submission is 5 p.m. Feb. 28, 2014. Notification of proposal acceptance or rejection will be emailed no later than Mar. 7, 2014. One fee waiver to the conference will be given for each accepted and scheduled presentation.
