Many of us really anticipate the discussions during our LifeBoat group meetings. Please note our new LifeBoat group home meeting location. Everyone may bring in your own snacks, lunch, and drinks to the “brunch lunch” 11am-1pm meeting.

The topic description and presenter information are below. Most importantly, be sure to look nearly the end of this email for instructions on how to download presentations and other stuff from our last three RMF LifeBoat group meetings.

********* TOPIC DESCRIPTION and PRESENTER for our 1 April meeting ********
Compliance in Just 1 Click
This presentation will address a question we often hear: What is compliance about? Sebastian Taphanel claims that compliance can happen in just one click. He will focus our lively LifeBoat group discussion on these four points:
1) Compliance does not equal Security
2) Compliance is most commonly about government-mandated and industry-specific compliance certifications
3) Compliance is about YOU: It’s not necessarily because management says so … you are a hugely important part of the process
4) Boiled down: It’s about assessing risk and implementing governance
Sebastian Taphanel volunteered to share his experiences assessing risk and implementing governance at the end of our previous “ATO in a Day” presentation by Jason Hess. There is a public link available to download all the stuff from that 18 March meeting.
Sebastian’s experiences blend a 20+ year DoD Special Ops / Intel career with 15+ years of sound security engineering practices. He focuses on implementing ‘Defense in Depth’ through the use of innovative technologies and common sense business practices. Sebastian currently helps Enterprises implement ‘Security by Design’ for their Cloud migrations.
Sebastian’s specialties include Securing End Points, Mobility, Protecting Sensitive Data, Cross Domain Solutions / Services; Secure Collaboration Environments, Enterprise Architecture, Cloud Security, Automating Governance, Risk management, and Compliance (GRC).
