Jamie McCoy & Desiree Kelleigh, the Albany Chapter of ASIS – International liaisons for the Women in Security Council, will be talking about the role of women in Security and work-life balance. Women also face many challenges in the field of security, which was previously a male dominated field.  Many women are going up in the ranks of security and face challenges of work-life balance. Work-life balance is a concept including the proper prioritizing between work (career and ambition) and lifestyle/home life.

While this group's benefits and programs are tailored for women, we encourage and welcome the participation of all members who are dedicated to the support of women in the security industry. Among this group’s goals are to provide support and assistance to women in the security field, as well as inspire those interested in entering the profession.

Presented By: Stacey A. Wright, Intel Program Manager at the Center for Internet Security (CIS)

Recommendations for cybersecurity while traveling abroad often sound like they were taken directly from the plot of a spy movie: use clean, "throw-away" devices, accounts, and passwords; assume your devices and information will be compromised; pull the batteries out of your devices before discussing sensitive information. Similar, although slightly less scary, recommendations abound for travelers going on vacation: don't post your location online; don't use public Wi-Fi.

In this presentation Stacey will provide insight into the targeting, theft, scams, and espionage that has driven the creation of these often touted recommendations so you can intelligently choose which recommendations are appropriate for your (or your executive's) next trip.

Parking: Free parking is available at the Center for Internet Security.

Meeting Fee: The normal $16.00 fee will be waived for all attendees.

Breakfast:  A cold breakfast and coffee/drinks will be provided.
