ISSA – NoVA Chapter Infosec Meetup Event – Thursday, 03-19: 2010 Census

The ISSA – NoVA Chapter infosec meetup event this Thursday is covering an interesting topic: the implementation of the 2010 Census. While the 2010 Census might seem like an unlikely security topic, the ISSA – NoVA abstract of the meetup makes a good point: “[the Census] presents a classic case of how you must balance operational requirements with security to ensure that this vital program is completed successfully with adequate security.” Whether you work for yourself, a small company, or a large corporation, that statement is something we can all relate to, and this meetup presents a perspective we can all learn from.

Since the meetup’s speaker (Tim Ruland) works for the US Census Bureau, you will get inside information about the unique challenges that the 2010 Census is presenting for security professionals.
