February 2021 Midwest Cyber Security Alliance Virtual Meeting

By February 15, 2021 Events, MCSA Meeting

They Know You Can’t Get to 100% Compliance … and That’s Okay

Thursday, February 18, 2021

Meeting old and new security requirements is about to change. For the first time, all requirements, even version 4.0 of the PCI DSS, are going to be driven by risk. What does that mean exactly? Each organization will need to decide what its definition of “acceptable risk” is, not only for the organization, but for its clients and business partners as well as the general public. Those who could be harmed by your service or product, and in how you conduct business, need to be considered in the risk equation.

To address these issues, the next Midwest Cyber Security Alliance virtual meeting will offer an update on some familiar topics including the concept of “reasonable controls” and “acceptable risk.” These terms have permeated our security regulations and standards over the last decade and have plagued organizations just as long — until today. Quite recently, regulators, judges, and security experts have all agreed to a common calculus to determine if an organization has reasonable controls. During this session, we will dissect the Sedona Conference’s new proposed legal test for reasonable security controls based on B2 – B1 < (P x H)1 – (P x H)2.

Understanding and leveraging the legal definition of “reasonable” will certainly have its advantages — please join Foley and HALOCK Security Labs on Thursday, February 18, 2021, for a discussion on what it is and how it can be applied to your organization.

There is no fee to attend this event, but advance registration is required. To register, please click on the RSVP button below.


NOTE: Upcoming MCSA meetings will be hosted virtually until it is safe to gather in person again. While we miss connecting with everyone from the scenic 40th floor of our Milwaukee office, we look forward to expanding participation to our colleagues and peers located outside of the Milwaukee–Chicago corridor!
