May 2016 Chapter Meeting – Securing Vendor & Mobile Workforce Access

Join ISSA  for our monthly luncheon on the topic of:  “Securing Vendor & Mobile Workforce Access” presented by: Rick LeClerc, Chief Solutions Architect, Bradford Networks.

This is also our annual meeting and the 2016 board will be elected. 

Presentation Abstract:

Topics will include how to facilitate the deployment of access policies based on device characteristics like “Who, What, Where and When” to secure access for domain users, vendors, mobile workforce and guests and how to reduce the attack surface and substantially save IT staffing costs by automating the enforcement of access policies to restrict/quarantine and/or remediate when anomalous activities from compromised hosts have been detected.
