Clearwater Compliance is proud to team up with the Knowledge Group to offer a webinar entitled “Harnessing the Power of NIST – Your Practical Guide to Effective Cybersecurity.”

The live event was crafted to provide practical, actionable steps for making high-quality decisions about managing and reducing information cybersecurity risk using the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST’s) Cybersecurity Framework and the NIST IRM process and is aimed at business leaders, managers, and professionals responsible for information privacy and/or security, compliance, or cyber risk management.

The NIST IRM approach (Framework + Process + Maturity Model) gives organizations a proven security methodology, along with critical standards, guidelines and practices for managing information risks. By combining the power of the NIST approach with a continuous process improvement mind-set, any organization can establish, implement, and mature their IRM programs to protect their information from today’s growing number of unrelenting threats. Better protection means a move to a more strategic, business-oriented, and architectural approach to information risk management.

This educational webinar marks the third collaboration between the two organizations, and features Clearwater CEO Bob Chaput as the keynote speaker. Chaput, one of the country’s leading experts in privacy, security, compliance, and information risk management, will discuss the need for a multifaceted approach to cybersecurity and risk management and the value of adopting the NIST approach.

“Harnessing the Power of NIST – Your Practical Guide to Effective Cybersecurity” will be webcast live Wednesday, March 2, 2016 from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. EST. Review event details or register today.
