Building a Strong Security Program, Dwayne Natwick and Nathan Benton, N2TC, Inc. (Commerce Township, MI) -- (3 CECs – RCDD, NTS Specialty, OSP Specialty, WD Specialty, ITS Installer 2 and ITS Technician)

Following the events of this decade, it has become a corporate responsibility to document and maintain policies to protect personal and corporate information assets. Companies need to train all members of the organization and their partners on such policies. A strong security program makes everyone in an organization accountable and protects the flow of information and assets throughout the organization.

A security program is made up of three main elements: the security policy, the security plan framework and the Corporate Information Assurance Protection Program (CIAPP). These elements create the foundation for implementation of projects and policies that will protect the organization from physical and network threats. This presentation will address these three elements and the importance of industry best practices in creating and implementing projects for physical and network security.

Wireless Technology Update, by Tony Whaley, RCDD/NTS/WD/CWP, RTKL Associates (Baltimore, MD) -- (3 CECs - RCDD, NTS Specialty, OSP Specialty, WD Specialty, ITS Installer 2 and ITS Technician)
