October 16, 2019 CPE Luncheon

Topic:  Incident Response/Data Integrity

Join us for this presentation by Diego Curt, Chief Compliance Officer, Idaho Government.

Time and Location: October 16th, at Boise Plaza, 1111 West Jefferson @ 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM.

Summary:  How prepared are you in handling a major cyber incident? Have you setup your Cyber Incident Response capability for continuous improvement? When the cyber incident is over, can you produce metrics to help you improve your defenses? The State of Idaho recently overhauled their Incident Response capability to answer these questions and more. For many organizations, a cyber incident response capability is more reactionary than proactive in nature. In this presentation, you will learn how to apply NIST SP 800-53 Incident Response Controls in a practical way. How to utilize event recording and information sharing languages to derive meaningful metrics, and what the State of Idaho did to make it accessible throughout our great State.

Prior to June 2019, Diego was the State of Idaho’s Deputy Chief Information Security Officer and did more than set state-wide policy and direction to protect information system assets.  Using his more than 7 years IT Auditing and Performance Improvement experience within his 25-year IT career, he determined to apply and combine his unique education and experience in cybersecurity to simplify the implementation of major control frameworks such as NIST SP 800-53. Diego and a team of state agency personnel developed the State of Idaho’s first state-wide Incident Response capability based on best-practices. Diego is married to his best friend Dina and has three children all over 18 years of age. Diego is a U.S. Coast Guard veteran and loves to go out for a ride on his Harley when he can get the chance.
