Professional Development Meeting - Cyber Security Month - Panelists Discussion
Come join us to celebrate Cyber Security Month with a panelist discussion with Terry Baresh, Tina Thorstenson, and Oliver-Patrice Clinch.
Terry Baresh Bio: Terry is a seasoned business analyst, VP of Finance for the MSP IIBA chapter, an internationally recognized speaker, a cybersecurity evangelist, the co-author of the IIBA Certificate in Cybersecurity Analysis (CCA), and an exam writer. He works closely with cybersecurity teams to grow, mature, and optimize their processes and drive towards automation and accountability. Are you curious about what a cybersecurity analyst does? Ever wondered what kinds of threats keep the CIO and CISO awake at night? Have you asked yourself how you can work with your information and cybersecurity teams? Or have you asked "When should we bring security into our sprint?" Terry has asked those questions every day and is here to help you find answers to your questions, too.
Terry will talk about the IIBA CCA exam, the role of the BA in cybersecurity, answer questions about current trends and threats in cyberspace, and anything regarding information, data and cybersecurity.
There are an estimated 3 to 4 million unfilled cybersecurity positions world-wide with no chance for those positions to be filled in the near future. Without trained and qualified resources available to perform cybersecurity work, organizations are struggling to automate their processes and integrate their cyber technologies in an effort to secure their systems and assets. Breaches and cyber risks are threatening organizations of every size and shape, with an estimated cost to global economies exceeding 6 trillion dollars before 2025. Cybersecurity analysts and engineers don't have time to do their own jobs let alone mature and optimize their processes, and this is creating an amazing opportunity for business analysts to step up, dig in, and roll up our sleeves. We are being asked to bring our skills, talents, and knowledge to assist cybersecurity organizations digitally transform and to stay ahead of the evolving cyber threats. If you're working on a scrum team, leaning towards the Agile mindset, then you and your team need to "shift left" with security, to bake security into your designs before you begin to build and test your solutions. Shifting left saves companies and enterprises significant cost and time. Let's get together and talk about how you can bring value to your organization while advancing your career by engaging cybersecurity and data protection practices today!
