The Role of Offensive Security Testing in a Privacy Program

JAN 26, 2023 * 5-7PM CT


Current privacy regulations and frameworks focus on responding to a data privacy loss event and are inadequate in addressing privacy via preventative measures. By addressing privacy risks proactively with a defensive mindset, organizations can avoid judicial and punitive processes, high cyber risk insurance rates, and manage their overall operational risk. One highly effective approach to managing cyber risk proactively is to create a robust security testing program.

Join us on Thursday, January 26, 2023, at the next Midwest Cyber Security Alliance (MCSA) meeting to learn more. Sam Horvath and Norman Kromberg from offensive security provider NetSpi will examine:
* How to take advantage of security controls for managing both privacy and security related risk
* Creating and scaling an offensive security program that accounts for privacy-focused risks and related compliance
* How to work with offensive security vendors in creating customized testing programs that address both privacy and security




We look forward to welcoming local attendees to the scenic 40th floor of our Milwaukee office! Because expanding participation to colleagues outside of the Milwaukee-Chicago corridor was an unexpected benefit of hosting virtual meetings over the last two years, we are pleased to continue offering a virtual option for those not able to attend in person. We will be monitoring CDC, local, and state guidelines, so the program format may be subject to change.

To register, click the RSVP button above and select in-person or virtual attendance. There is no fee to attend this event, but advance registration is required.
