Swoose speaks at DECUS 2002 Symposium

Milton Baar, Director Technology Innovation, spoke at the DECUS 2002 Symposium in Sydney. The topic was "Information Security - A Practical Approach". Milton provided an overview of how organisations can leverage the introduction of AS/NZS7799 to enhance their organisation's information security environment.

An audience covering both private and public sector groups gained some practical advice along with several case studies of how to, and how not to approach the contentious issues relating to information security.

Public Sector IT Security keynote address

Milton Baar, Director Technology Innovation with The Swoose Partnership, will speak at the Public Sector IT Conference to be held from 25-27 May at the Sydney Hilton.

Milton will give a keynote address on Tuesday 26 May at 9:00am, covering IT Security and Risk Management Procedures in a Public Sector Environment. Highlights of the address will include:
Developing an effective IT security strategy
Audit strategies for the public sector
Risk management concerns
Public sector priorities for audit and risk management
"I believe that financial and budgetary constraints are having an adverse effect on the implementation of suitable IT security risk management strategies" noted Milton during a recent interview. "The recent Budget changes to the tax effectiveness of software purchases will increase an organisation's temptation to adopt more risky approaches to security management and implementation" he said.

Also speaking at the conference will be John Frisken, Director Quality and Risk Services and Susan Butler, Director Privacy and Policy, both with the Information Systems Group, an associated company of The Swoose Partnership.
