  TOPIC:  A Discussion of Verizon 2009 Data Breach Investigations Report
  BY:     Ron Woerner, CISSP
  WHO:    All Nebraska/Iowa Information Security Professionals
  WHEN:   Wednesday - May 20, 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
  WHERE:  Johnny's Cafe
          4702 South 27th Street, Omaha, NE
  WHY:    To share information with like-minded professionals
          (and to share a FREE lunch provided you RSVP!)
  HOW:    YOU MUST RSVP to csfrsvp at nebraskacert.org and provide
          your name, company, phone and email address
          by Close Of Business Monday, 18 May.

  DESCRIPTION:  More electronic records were breached in 2008
                than the previous four years combined, fueled
                by a targeting of the financial services industry
                and a strong involvement of organized crime,
                according to the "2009 Verizon Business Data Breach
                Investigations Report" (DBIR) released April 15,

                This concluded that mistakes and oversight failures
                hindered security efforts more than a lack of
                resources at the time of the breach. This CSF will
                be a discussion of the report findings, conclusions,
                and potential solutions.

If those of you who have access to lists of interested individuals
would pass this message along, it would be appreciated!

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
