April 2018 Meeting

April 12, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Big Bounce Theory: The Next Round of Security Program Development for Security Leaders

Mike Gentile, President & CEO


Mike Gentile has been on the front lines of helping organizations build Information Security Programs for more than 20 years. He has written multiple recognized books on the subject, provided hundreds of presentations, and built many Security Programs in both internal and external consulting roles for organizations ranging from bootstrap start-ups to leading Fortune 500’s. Many of Mike’s publications are used as courseware in advanced education organizations around the world.


Early in my career I was given some sage advice from a security legend at the time. He said, “I find it interesting that all this stuff repeats itself about every 7 years.” After researching security program development over 21 years now, I have seen some ups, downs, but most important cycles; 3 to be exact….just as he said.

This session will explore what I believe to be round 4. Some of these ideas may be controversial and welcome debate, from a move back to prescriptive based decision management, the use of unskilled over skilled resources in security, and more.
