Announces Information Security Vendor Management Workshop Announces Information Security Vendor Management Workshop This workshop will focus on third-party oversight from the moment a project is initiated through production implementation and beyond.

Princeton, NJ ( October 16, 2006 – We count on them for providing the technology we need to secure our enterprises. We count on their products and services to increase productivity and reduce costs. We count on their support and expertise when things go wrong. We know how well the relationship is going. Why then, are the regulators so concerned about third-party oversight?

What does “third party oversight” really mean? What does it entail? Who is responsible for doing it, and what happens when the results do not turn out as expected? This workshop will be looking at this topic from two vantage points – a security practitioner who developed and implemented a plan for a Fortune 500 bank, and a former FDIC regulator who would have evaluated the approach and reviewed the results.

This workshop is going to be presented by Anne Terwilliger and Susan Orr. Anne E.
