Cyber Risk Standards Summit

October 13, 2015

Cyber Risk Standards Summit

 

Topic: Standards for measuring the risk and cost exposure of software are now available for use

 

Hosted by: Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ) in cooperation with Object Management Group (OMG), Interoperability Clearinghouse (ICH), and IT Acquisition Advisory Council (IT-AAC)

 

Date: Tuesday, October 13th from 8:00am – 12:00pm

 

Location: Army Navy Country Club, Nimitz Ballroom, 1700 Army Navy Drive, Arlington, VA

 

RSVP: 781-444-1132 Ext 149 or tracie.berardi@it-cisq.org

 

On October 13th you’re invited to meet with chief scientists, Federal CIOs, public/private IT leaders, and standards bodies working to advance the state of practice in IT risk management. Government leaders will discuss the new role of federal CIOs and how to leverage FITARA to drive down cyber risk. We would like to hear your perspective on the challenges and opportunities facing CIOs in an environment of digital innovation and increased cyber threats.

 

Hear a briefing on cyber risk standards that are “acquisition-ready” for measuring the reliability, security, performance efficiency, and maintainability of software applications. These measures can be used to evaluate the risk in software-intensive systems from such sources as unauthorized penetrations, outages, data corruption, degraded performance, and excessive complexity.

 

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED!

Presentations are posted to the CISQ Members Area under Event & Seminar Presentations.
