AITP-RTP Meeting – Cyber Security

Summary:

Cybersecurity experts recorded the highest number of Zero-Day attacks ever in 2021, more than double the amount in 2020. The trafficking of zero-day exploits is lucrative for our adversaries and the growth trend is expected to continue. Responding to the volume and virulence of zero-days is daunting for any IT team. This entertaining presentation endeavors to help IT and Security teams understand the threat and offer guidance on effective response. Topics will include: 1. A review of the significant zero-day vulnerabilities identified in 2021 2. The trends we can expect for 2022 3. The best practices for responding to zero-day vulnerabilities through proper risk assessment and incident response.

Our Speaker:

Greg Mason

Following an 18-year career in senior IT management positions across healthcare, medical device and the pharmaceutical industries, Greg transitioned to build the Security, Audit and Compliance department for a popular Raleigh-based MSP. He moved on to do the same for a national MSP servicing clients in all regions of the U.S. Those experiences exposed Greg to a broad spectrum of regulations, compliance initiatives and the gritty world of fighting threat actors.  His primary career objective is to help customers reduce risk to their IT systems and data. Greg brings a wealth of security, audit, and compliance experience to Tego including identifying risk through assessment and mitigation, providing systems security management, internal audit and governance solutions, leading SOC 2, Type 2 attestation and ISO 27001 certification initiatives and managing client CMMC, PCI, HIPAA, SOX, GDPR and CCPA programs.

Greg is an ISACA Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and a Certified Data Privacy Solutions Engineer (CDPSE). He recently became a CMMC-AB Registered Practitioner allowing Tego to become a CMMC-AB Registered Provider Organization positioning us to assist our many customers in the Defense Industrial Base navigate the strict requirements of the Defense Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DFARS).
