    Pursuing Security Excellence, how to be good even without all the resources.

    In this session we will provide you with what you need to be successful with the fundamental best practice of security. Understand the keys to success with a security framework, as there are many, and commit to one to take action!  Experts in security best practices will describe the frameworks they use, the critical standards, the method for assessing your status and actions you can take to achieve a secure result.  You will understand the actions you can take and when it would pay off to get help. Walk away from this session with your own action plan.
