How to Infuse Quality Into Cyber-Security

You’ve heard it on the news: hacking, WannCry, Petya, and many more. Cybersecurity has been thrust into the spotlight in recent years, but what is it, really? Why does it matter? Why should I care? This session will give you answers to those questions and information about much more.

We will start with a number of basic definitions, and look at some cybersecurity-related events. We will then stalk about the real risks associated with cybersecurity deficiencies. Once we have covered the “what” and the “why,” we will cover the “how” by looking at the anatomy of a cyber attack. We will follow the path an adversary can use to work their way into your organization’s network and get what they want. We will also look at how your organization can improve its cyber-defense posture by ensuring that your personnel are best able to keep your network safe.

Facilitating Virtual Problem-Solving Events

Traditional tools assume participants in any group activity be co-located to solve common process problems. But in this era of increasing globalization where processes span the country and sometime continents, it is necessary to engage the wide variety of participants who are geographically distributed to solve inevitable process issues. In addition, employers have been using the perk of remote work to attract and retain workers in an increasingly competitive talent landscape, especially given low unemployment rates, making improvements to geographically distributed processes increasingly important.

This session is a reflection of our experience in facilitating an improvement event where there were nine participants located in nine different locations across the United States. The unique challenges in trying to communicate and problem solve in a virtual environment is discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how improvements can be facilitated with geographically distributed teams.
  • Learn the preparations needed to make virtual engagement successful.
  • Discover the virtual collaboration tool capabilities needed to facilitate remote teams.
  • Get tips to save money on travel.
