ISSA-LA October Virtual Meeting
October 21 @ 11:45 am PDT
Join us as we welcome an old friend, Ira Winkler President of Secure Mentem, as he discusses key concepts from his new book, “You CAN Stop Stupid: Stopping Losses from Accidental and Malicious Actions.”
Managers, security specialists, IT staff, and other professionals often complain that employees, customers, and users are stupid. But what is “stupid”? In general, don’t accuse someone in your organization of being stupid. Instead, identify and adjust your own failings in bad employment or training practices, as well as the processes and technologies that enable the “stupidity”.
Speaker: Ira Winkler
