Radian Compliance FREE ISO Standards Workshop
1:30–3:30pm (ET)
10306 Eaton Place, Fairfax VA 22030-2201

Register today for this important FREE workshop. CLICK HERE.

The focus of this workshop is on information security, cybersecurity, and privacy.

The session will review how these three components need to be addressed together to ensure risks are correctly identified and holistically mitigated. We will review multiple frameworks within the ISO 27000 family that provide detailed guidance and controls to support security for PII, in the Cloud, within specific industries, etc. An overview of ISO 27001, ISO 27701, ISO 27017, ISO 27018 and more will be discussed.

This special 2-hour workshop will provide:
• Discussions to identify risks to misuse or breach of data for information security, cybersecurity, and privacy.
• Review of ISO standards to provide overall governance and utilize controls to support risk mitigation
• Opportunities to review specific controls for data types as well as industry. . . . .

The session is facilitated by Lisa DuBrock, CPA, CPP, and Sally Smoczynski, CISSP, Owners and Managing Partners of Radian Compliance, LLC.
We look forward to seeing you there!

–Workshop Details –

With the bombardment of multiple contractual, legal, and regulatory requirements to prove Information Security, Cybersecurity, and Privacy of data, an organization can attempt to reduce risk through the implementation of controls from many different standards and frameworks. Without proper governance, monitoring, and continued improvement, the controls may get stale or not stay current with requirements and technology. The ISO 27000 family of standards provides guidance and a certifiable framework that ensures ongoing risk management of information assets to the level required of the organization.

Thank you to everyone who attended the March 4 Virtual webinar on CMMC—CUI data flow, with Tania Abella, PMP, RP.


Virtual webinar on CMMC—CUI data flow.

Instructor: Tania Abella, PMP, RP

In partnership with the Virginia APEX Accelerator, Radian is presenting this Free Webinar about CMMC—CUI Data Flow.

Webinar Description:
Identifying Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and its flow is necessary to determine the scope of an assessment by a C3PAO. CUI is created when information is put on paper or entered into an information system. The flow includes how information is received, what happens to it after receipt, where it’s stored, and where does it get sent. Consider the requirement in NIST SP 800-171 Control the flow of CUI in accordance with approved authorizations. Without having an understanding of how CUI flows, an organization cannot control the flow and ensure access is controlled.

This virtual webinar will provide tips and examples on how to identify and document the flow of CUI within your organization.

Your instructor, Tania Abella, PMP, RP, is a Cyber AB registered practitioner, and is Radian’s CMMC Subject Matter Expert (SME). Read Tania’s Bio.
She will be supported by Lisa DuBrock, CPA, CPP, and Sally A. Smoczynski, CISSP, Owners and Managing Partners of Radian Compliance, LLC.

“Benefits of Creating a DPIA
(Data Privacy Impact Assessment)
for your Security Environment”

Presented by Radian Managing Partner Lisa DuBrock, CPP and Brandan Keaveny Founder/Principal Consultant of Data Ethics.

Presentation Abstract
Protection of personally identifiable information (PII) is not only a regulatory requirement, but also a business best practice. This includes the PII that is captured and stored in applications used by security practitioners such as access control systems. Creation of a Data Privacy Impact Assessment (DPIA) supports the identification of processes and underlying PII elements obtained and stored by the organization. The DPIA further identifies the privacy risks, and the controls to mitigate these risks. This session will identify the role of a DPIA in your organization’s security framework, what a DPIA looks like, and how to utilize the DPIA when looking to mitigate the risks of a privacy breach.
