President’s Message – Winter 2018/2019

Dear fellow members,

During this holiday season, we are thankful for our chapter members and volunteers. We celebrate our success to date at the Top Golf kickoff social event, the student-focused round table discussion, and the highly rated cybersecurity and privacy presentation from David Hartley.

ISACA St. Louis has more great events on tap, literally and figuratively, including the free Holiday Social Event at Milo’s Tavern and Bocce Garden on December 12th and a cybersecurity presentation from ISACA International Board Director Gregory Touhill on January 15th.

Planning is nearly complete for a two-day CSX Penetration Testing Overview course in March 2019; however, your input is required to confirm sufficient interest and identify the best date. Please review the details here and respond accordingly.

Finally, Rebecca Harness represented our chapter at the ISACA Global Leadership Summit in Chicago and brought back important information concerning the future direction of ISACA International.

Sincerely,

Robert Hof
ISACA St. Louis Chapter President

Skating to the Puck to Improve Cybersecurity Jan 15

Click HERE to register.

Description:

In this presentation, Gregory Touhill will discuss today’s cybersecurity landscape. In a provocative and sometimes irreverent presentation, he’ll critically analyze substantive weaknesses in current cybersecurity tactics, techniques, and procedures and share thoughts on how national prosperity and security can and should be improved by taking a different approach to improving cybersecurity (i.e. “skating to where the puck is going to be rather than where it is”).

Speaker:

Gregory J. Touhill, CISM, CISSP, Brigadier General (ret) – President, Cyxtera Federal Group and ISACA International Board Director – LinkedIn

Gregory is president of Cyxtera Federal Group, Cyxtera Technologies, a secure infrastructure company which offers data center services and cybersecurity capabilities to federal agencies and departments (USA). In addition, he serves as adjunct professor of Cybersecurity at Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College. He serves on the boards of Bay Dynamic, Inc. and Cybersponse, Inc. as well as the Symantec Federal Advisory Board and Cyber Security Forum Initiative Advisory Boards. Prior to joining Cyxtera Technologies, he was selected by President Obama as the US government’s first Chief Information Security Officer. His other civilian government service includes duties as the Deputy Assistant Secretary, Cybersecurity and Communications at the United States Department of Homeland Security; and as Director of the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, where he led national programs to protect the United States and its critical infrastructure. He is a retired Air Force general officer, a highly-decorated combat leader, an accomplished author and public speaker, and a former American diplomat. He has received numerous awards and recognition, including most recently, the 2017 F. Lynn McNulty Tribute Award in recognition of his contributions to securing the nation from cyber threats and the 2016 Federal 100 Award for accomplishments as Deputy Assistant Secretary to improve public- and private-sector partnership to better manage risk.
