Free Webinar From ISACA Helps Companies Implement the US Cybersecurity Framework

As part of its new Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) program, ISACA will host a free webinar titled How to Implement the US Cybersecurity Framework using COBIT 5 on Tuesday, 29 July 2014, at 12 p.m. EST (16:00 UTC). This webinar is the second in a six-part cybersecurity series.

ISACA was an active participant in a series of workshops hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that led to the US Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (the Cybersecurity Framework, or CSF), which includes COBIT as a core reference. The framework began with presidential executive order EO 13636 to improve the security and resilience of critical infrastructure in light of escalating cyberthreats. The executive order tasked NIST with developing a cybersecurity framework that included a set of standards, methodologies, procedures and processes that align policy, business and technological approaches to address cyberrisks.

The webinar will be presented by Greg Witte, senior security engineer for Security Standards Team G2, Inc., primary contributor to the CSF, and lead author of ISACA’s CSF implementation guide. He will discuss how to enable enterprises to successfully implement CSF to achieve stakeholder goals and improve cybersecurity.

“The CSF helps executives and business managers develop a prioritized action plan for preventing, detecting and responding to today’s cybersecurity threats,” said Witte. “ISACA brings proven steps that enable implementation of the CSF in a measurable, actionable way. Applying the industry-based framework through specific processes, such as those found in COBIT 5, makes it possible to achieve CSF outcomes that are accountable and practical.”

In mid-August, ISACA will issue an implementation guide for the US Cybersecurity Framework. Additionally, ISACA will offer four more Cybersecurity Nexus webinars this year, including:

  • 30 July—Cybersecurity Diagnosis in Industrial Environments
  • 30 September—Advanced Persistent Threats

An archived version of the first webinar on 20 Critical Cyberdefense Controls is currently available. Each webinar is one hour and ISACA members earn one free CPE credit. To register for the webinars or the archive, visit www.isaca.org/webinars.

ISACA’s Cybersecurity Nexus, located at www.isaca.org/cyber, includes resources to help cybersecurity professionals at every level of their careers, and to help enterprises navigate the complicated cybersecurity landscape and develop their workforces. CSX was developed to fill a global need for a central location where security professionals and their enterprises can find cybersecurity research, guidance, certificates and certifications, education, mentoring and community.

ISACA’s cybersecurity resources are available at www.isaca.org/cyber, and COBIT can be downloaded free of charge at www.isaca.org/COBIT. The US Cybersecurity Framework is available here.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
