The Decision Makers Guide To Managing Risk - Joel Cardella (Circle City Con 2017 Videos) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

The Decision Makers Guide To Managing Risk
Joel Cardella

Circle City Con 2017

How do you arrive at the IT decisions you make? What factors do you use in security spending decisions? If you are having a hard time defining this, you are not alone. I am continually surprised at the lack of information organizations have, and still make critical business decisions. It may seem obvious, but it is a reality that bad decisions are being made all the time. Bad decisions increase organizational risk. Decision-making needs to have discipline and rigor just like any successful business process. This talk uses real world examples of successful and failed decisions, and their outcomes, as a learning tool. The takeaway is better, more solid ways to make, justify and defend your decisions.

Joel Cardella has over 25 years of experience in information technology, having run a gamut from network operations, sales support, data center management, field operations and information security. He has worked in industries including telecommunications, healthcare and manufacturing. As a former CISO, he helps C-suite executives better understand and interact with information security topics. He helps organizations build and run security programs, manage risk, and increase their security maturity posture. Joel has spoken at national conferences on topics ranging from blue teaming to risk management.
