ISSA Thought Leadership Webinar Series
A Cure for the Common SOC
Sponsored by: Jask
With cybersecurity concerns escalating, organizations of all sizes have scrambled to boost budgets, hire talent and improve security operations – all in the hopes of catching up with and defeating a sophisticated and nearly-invisible enemy. But in this rush to build the SOC according to perceived industry best practices, have we truly optimized our human, technological and procedural resources? Or are we all SOC, and no action? If we took a moment to regroup and build the whole system again from scratch, would it be better than the SOC we’ve reached today by throwing resources at the problem? And if so, where did we go wrong – and how do we course correct? Join a panel of experts to discuss their visions of the perfect SOC and its top priorities while exploring how it can be evolved to achieve them.REGISTER NOW

Jim Butler, January 23, 2018 Hotel News Resource
Protecting guests’ information (and employees’ information) from hackers is one of the biggest business challenges faced by hotel owners today. Data breaches can result in loss of reputation and loss of revenue, and can trigger costly lawsuits and government investigations.
In his earlier article, Not Just Heads in Beds – Cybersecurity for Hotel Owners, my partner Robert Braun [Advisory Board of the Information Systems Security Association, Los Angeles chapter], reminds hotel owners that they are generally required to indemnify brands and managers for costs incurred, which could include the cost of a data breach. Now, in his article below, he discusses why hotel data breaches are prevalent and what owners need to do to create a secure data environment for the properties they own.…(read the entire story)
