Event description:

Beginning IT Officer Training

Cybersecurity is one of the top risks on everyone’s radar. Regulators continue to focus on cybersecurity as hackers demonstrate increasing success. Therefore, it is crucial that new IT officers and their supervisors seek current, relevant training.

Updated regulatory guidance now requires clear definition of cybersecurity responsibility (e.g., information security officer), which is independent of IT operations. This session will compare and contrast the roles of IT operations and information security officers. The core of the session will describe key attributes and capabilities that an IT Officer needs to develop. A sample career growth model designed to develop professionals for IT operations and cybersecurity roles will be examined.
