What Do You Want from InfoSec Next Year?

Given that so many firms will spend the end of the year issuing their opinions and predictions for next year, we thought we’d go against the grain, so to speak, and instead ASK YOU what you want the next year to bring?

What do you hope the information security community accomplishes or changes in a major way next year?

What new services or changes to service offerings would you most like to see?

If you could wake up on the first morning of the new year and have a brand new security product on your door step, what would it do for you? How would you like it to operate? What do you most fantasize about accomplishing?

What projects would you like to see grow in 2014? What terms, techniques or technologies would you like to see left behind in 2013?

Drop us a line via Twitter (@microsolved or @lbhuston) or via our Facebook page (http://facebook.com/microsolved) and let us know what you dream about. We’ll work hard to see if we can make your holiday season wishes come true! 

CMHSecLunch is Monday & a Quick Question

Just a reminder that CMHSecLunch is Monday, December 9th at North Market. The party starts at 11:30am Eastern and will run through about 1pm Eastern. Come on out and hang with us! 

We usually eat upstairs on the side nearest High Street and the end near the elevator. Look for a group of security geeks hanging out in that area and sit down for a snack and a chat.

Hope to see you then!

And now for the quick question. What would you think of also having a webex during the same period of time for those who are unable to attend physically or who are friends who have moved away? If that would interest you and you might enjoy it, drop me a line on Twitter and let me know (@lbhuston). I am considering this, but I won’t pouch forward unless at least 10 people ping me on Twitter or some other way. 

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you on the 9th!

Code of Conduct Research

We have begun working on another project around helping organizations better protect their information assets and the reputations of both their employees and their firms at large. As part of that project, we would like to solicit some feedback from the readership of the blog. 

Does your organization have a code of conduct for employees? Does is have a written code of conduct for management, board members and/or public relations campaigns? 

Is it a living code of conduct or is it a stagnant piece of policy? How often is it updated? Does it cover social media presence, community engagement and/or public perception of the firm or individual?

Who audits the code of conduct and how is it monitored for violations? 

Please feel free to give us your thoughts on the code of conduct and which industry you are in. We are taking responses via email (info <at> microsolved <dot> com) or via Twitter (@lbhuston). 

Thanks for responding. Responses will be entered into a random drawing for a Starbucks gift card, so respond for a chance to win some java goodness. 🙂
