Dr. Greg will show how to apply your PMP tools and processes to most cybersecurity projects. He will highlight how to combine the project management best practices in a HYBRID way to deliver and optimize most technology projects including cyber security. Attendees will see that the tools and processes they use can be applied to technology projects using tailoring.

The presentation is not focused on cybersecurity; rather, Dr. Greg will bring together the PMBOK Guide, ISO Risk and Information Security Management, ITIL and NIST into a lean approach.

We expect more automation, integration, and online activity in the foreseeable future resulting in more cybersecurity risks and issues. Therefore, organizations and individuals are spending more resources on cybersecurity projects to implement, maintain and optimize the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their digital services and data. The demand for cybersecurity projects and expertise is growing; it is a great time to learn about cybersecurity project management.
Cybersecurity is complex and aligning to a multitude of international standards can be problematic. In Dr. Greg Skulmoski’s presentation, attendees will be introduced to a project management approach that combines standards and is tailored to cybersecurity projects detailed in his book Shields Up: Cybersecurity Project Management. The Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, NIST Cybersecurity Framework, ITIL Service Management, ISO Risk Management, ISO Quality Management, and ISO Information Security Standards are aligned into a project delivery approach applicable to most cybersecurity projects, most of the time. The attendees will also learn about a risk management technique not in the PMBOK® Guide that they can use on their projects tomorrow!
