Protecting Information Systems in Small- and Medium-Sized Businesses

Our Lady of the Lake University’s Center for Information Assurance Management and Leadership and Delta Risk presented this four-part series on protecting information systems in small and medium-sized business.  The seminars were targeted to business leaders rather than information technology professionals, and were specifically intended to educate business leaders on their critical role in protecting business processes by protecting information systems.  The series helped business leaders:
  • Identify threats to an organization's information systems
  • Develop external and internal policies to help protect systems
  • Take steps to protect against losses to information systems

Protecting information systems from loss is a management problem, not a technical problem; whether that loss results from disaster, equipment failure, or cyber attack. This seminar series acknowledged that limited information technology (IT) expertise in many small- and medium-size businesses might present significant challenges in protecting their information systems, and provided the education and training needed for business leaders to protect their information systems. Industry and education experts in information security and disaster planning provided business leaders with the tools and skills needed through lectures, discussions, and practical exercises. 
The sessions covered:
  • Business Continuity and Risk Planning for Business Success
  • Managing Emerging Threats and Technologies
  • Role of Internal and External Policies in Information Security
  • Resilience Solutions for Information Security
