Bobby Dominguez will discuss the operationalization of the NIST Cyber Security Framework to create an information technology risk program at ISACA’s CSX 2016 North America conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, 17-19 October 2016. CSX 2016 North America will be focused on practical cybersecurity solutions and guidance, tailored to every level of a security professional’s career.

In his presentation, titled “Implementing an IT Risk Program using the NIST Cyber Security Framework,” Mr. Dominguez will describe the key elements of the NIST CSF, and will focus on best practices for leveraging the CSF to implement an IT risk program. Specific examples and tools for operationalizing the framework will be reviewed and provided.

“I think it’s important for practitioners to see the pragmatic application of these frameworks. They are more than academic exercises and can really help you bootstrap or better structure your risk and security programs,” said Mr. Dominguez.

Global IT and cybersecurity association ISACA developed Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) to help organizations build qualified cybersecurity workforces. To provide in-person training and networking opportunities, ISACA is hosting the CSX 2016 North America conference. ISACA debuted the conference last year to a sold-out audience and will hold this event in three regions around the globe this year—North America, Europe and Asia.

The conference will allow attendees to explore trends and threats, exchange ideas and insights, and learn how to excel at defending against threats and protecting their enterprises. Seventy sessions in three levels of complexity will be offered in seven cybersecurity tracks.

 CSX 2016 North America will also feature the CSX Cyber Challenge, an online competition that will test attendees’ cybersecurity skills in areas such as ethical hacking, computer network defense and computer forensics. The competition was developed by Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (CIAS) located at University of Texas, San Antonio.

The conference will also feature a special networking event as part of ISACA’s Connecting Women Leaders in Technology program, and a CISO Forum, to which C-level executive professionals can request an invitation and qualify for complimentary conference registration.
