One the advantages of being in multiple groups is that I get to bore you
all with the occasional cross-promotion. :)  The Infragard group is
having an open meeting the morning of August 19th.  If you are secretly
enthralled ISO standards, this is your chance to learn all about ISO
27000 and it's related sub-standards.  Let me tell you, it will be a
rockin' time!

More seriously, if you are looking to work for a larger organization or
a consulting firm, this is the sort of thing that is good to know.  I
know that some of us are looking to make a change, and while Infragard
isn't exactly a social networking group, that does occur, so if you have
interest in security and business, this is a good meeting to attend.

Details follow:
The ISO/IEC 27000 series includes information security standards
published jointly by the International Organization for
(ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). This
series provides best practice recommendations on information security
management, risks and controls within the context of an overall
Information Security Management System (ISMS). 

The ISO 27000 standards are applicable to organizations of all types,
across industries, and sizes.  If your organization is required to
comply with regulations such as PCI-DSS, HITECH, HIPPA or other
or State requirements, please note that the ISO 27000 provides an
exceptional framework to address security regulatory mandates.

In this executive brief, we will focus on the two standards that
influence information security initiatives worldwide * the ISO
27001and 27002. These standards cover requirements related to security
techniques for information technology as well as provide a model for
establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing,
maintaining and improving an ISMS. 

This is an open meeting, so registration is not necessary.  Simply
us at the Hoover Building (East 14th and Walnut) at 8:00 AM on August
19th.  The meeting will be in Room 5 on basement level A.
