CIS Webcast Addresses How to Protect Personal Info & Data

CIS, an independent voice in the field of cybersecurity, released today the replay link for their popular one-hour webcast, titled “Privacy Implications for the CIS Security Controls.” The original webcast was Thursday, February 9, 2017.

The CIS Controls are a set of internationally recognized security best practices to help defend against the most common security threats.

The Privacy webcast coincides with the launch of the Privacy Implications Guide for the CIS Controls. The Privacy Guide identifies opportunities for security professionals to integrate privacy considerations into the CIS Controls. The webcast will feature suggestions and examples from the Privacy Guide on how to apply privacy principles to the CIS Controls, including how to protect personal information and data. The webcast is open to anyone.

Panelists for the webcast include:

  • Mary Ellen Callahan, partner at Jenner & Block and founder and chair of the firm’s Privacy and Information Governance Practice. Callahan is a nationally recognized privacy attorney who served as Chief Privacy Officer for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security from 2009 until August 2012.
  • Joanne McNabb, Director of Privacy Education and Policy in the Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit of the California Department of Justice, which last year recommended the CIS Controls as “a minimum level of information security” that organizations should meet.
  • Rick Doten, Chief of Cyber and Information Security for Crumpton Group LLC.

“The Privacy Implications Guide is vital to the security community because it offers practical suggestions for aligning privacy and security,” said Mary Ellen Callahan, one of the volunteer authors of the Guide.

“This Guide addresses the important challenges of privacy concerns within the security environment. CIS is very grateful to our volunteer community of IT professionals who helped develop the Guide,” said Tony Sager, Executive Vice President and Chief Evangelist for CIS.
