OWASP Austin Chapter Monthly Meeting -- Tuesday, July 26th from 11:30 AM to
1:00 PM

*If I Knew Then What I Know Now: Building an InfoSec Program from Scratch*

Congratulations! You’ve been working hard for years and your employer has
finally seen your potential. You’ve now been promoted to being the only
person responsible for starting and managing an Information Security
Program for a $1B+/yr company. With nobody there to help you and a
minuscule budget, where do you start? How do you determine where the issues
lie and prioritize how to fix them? At what point do you grow your team and
how do you justify it? This vendor-agnostic talk will cover what you need
to know in order to build an efficient, cost-effective, and relevant
security program for your company.

*Speaker: *Josh Sokol

Josh Sokol, CISSP, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a
BS in Computer Science in 2002. Since that time, he has worked for several
large companies, including AMD and BearingPoint, spent some time as a
military contractor, and is currently employed as the Information Security
Program Owner at National Instruments. In his current role, Sokol manages
all compliance, security architecture, risk management, and vulnerability
management activities for NI. Sokol created the free and open source risk
management tool named SimpleRisk, has spoken on dozens of security topics
including the much-hyped “HTTPSCan Byte Me” talk at Black Hat 2010, and
currently serves on the OWASP Global Board of Directors.
