Security or Compliance: Why Not Both?

Feb 7, 2023, 10:30 PM – Feb 8, 2023, 12:00 AM

We are finally back... Welcome to our first of many meetups in 2023. We will be meeting in February to kickoff the year with a great talk from our friends Igor Volovich & Rutger Thomschutz of Qmulos. We will be meeting at the Carahsoft office (First Floor Café) at 11493 Sunset Hills Rd. Reston VA, 20190

About this event

We know "compliance is not security." But why? Because we've been conditioned to see compliance as a set of checkboxes: No security value or insights to inform decisions, just a cost of doing business. No reason these should be separate functions, yet most enterprises struggle to derive security value from their compliance programs. As Continuous Monitoring becomes a standard requirement, static compliance won't be an option. Learn how to evolve to Converged Continuous Compliance using Splunk and drive operational security.

Igor is an award-winning cybersecurity executive and industry thought-leader whose experience includes some of the largest private and public sector enterprises, including CISO roles at Invensys and Schneider Electric, and most recently as a senior enterprise security strategy and architecture advisor to the CISO of the United States Postal Service.
