IT Policies and Procedures Workshop!

July 7th, 2017

Security PnP workshopWalk away with IT Policies and Procedures for your Organization!

New Workshop from Simplex-IT

Seats Still available!

Companies depend on Policies and Procedures to inform their employees on "what's right."  Security is a huge issue. Between Ransomware, Phishing attacks and good old fashioned malware, the bad guys are coming up with more and more creative ways to “do their thing.” Whether their goal is disruption, extortion or data theft, successful breaches are bad news. Hiding behind the old “we’re too small to be worth hacking” just isn’t a legitimate form of defense.

"Bob is straightforward and generous with his knowledge. He presents complicated topics in a manner that many can appreciate. I will definitely recommend this workshop to everyone." -          Anne Schaum, Wire-Net

So you go ahead and purchase and configure firewalls, endpoints, and add multi-factor authentication processes. You’ve still got the most vulnerable facet of your organization.

Annoying, pesky humans.

Part of the challenge is that organizations aren’t consistently defining (and informing) their employees what they’re supposed to do. Can they work from home using their own system? Can they install software on their work devices? What’s supposed to happen to data and accounts when an employee leaves?

Yup, we’re talking Policies and Procedures. It’s tough to find useful resource that are really aimed at the Small to Medium organizations.

"I recommend this workshop to anyone looking to 1. Learn the IT policy and procedure issues 2. Learn the talking points, current, ongoing, and developing IT security issues 3. Learn solutions to IT policies and procedures" - Csilla Smith, NORMLS

We’ve put together a new kind of workshop. To the best of our knowledge, we’re the first Managed Service Provider *anywhere* to try to do this.

During this 4 hour workshop we’ll be working with participants to develop Policies and Procedures specifically for their organization for issues like:

  • „Information Security Policy
  • „Employee Termination
  • „Security Incident Response
  • „Sanction Policy
  • „Network Security
  • „Access Control
  • „Computer Use
  • „Equipment Disposal
  • „BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
  • „Facility Security Plan

We’ll review each of the topics specific to your organization, and give guidance. At the end of the event you’ll have enough information to form a boiler plate of specifics that you’ll be able to add to your existing Policy and Procedures (you’ll actually develop the boiler plate during the process).

The cost? Well, it’s free, kinda.  We request (but not required) a $150 donation to Blast Glioblastoma, which raises funds for brain tumor research.

  • When: Wednesday, July 12th from 9am-4pm (includes lunch)
  • Where: Simplex-IT, 4301 Darrow Rd, Stow, OH 44224
  • Cost: Free (see above)
