I was on a panel talking to a bunch of infrastructure-security type people yesterday and came away feeling like we didn’t deliver on our promise to provide practical hands-on stuff. So I’m tossing a couple Powerpoint slide decks up in this post by way of making amends.
This first one is the deck we used in Saint Paul to rally people around the “get ready for Y2k” initiative. It’s an example of how to do non-scary, what’s-in-it-for-me? conversation around a pretty tough topic. Maybe some of this kind of thinking can help the security folks when they’re pitching to their customers. Click HERE for the file (no warrantees — scan it before you open it).
This next file is a huge deck I put together when I was first briefing the Big Kids at MnSCU about their enterprise security initiative. This was the basis of selling senior management that this was a Good Thing and showed them how security could make them more money, make them more nimble, improve quality and oh by the way reduce costs. This is an “everything including the kitchen sink” deck that might have a few ideas for people to steal. Click HERE for the file (same warrantee as above).
There. I feel like I’ve lived up to my advance-billing now. Hopefully some security mavens will find some useful stuff in these.
