In honor of Cybersecurity Awareness Month #BeCyberSmart, Security Awareness Advocate Erich Kron, along with IIBA® are working together to help raise awareness within the community about cybersecurity. Join us as we discuss a growing cybersecurity trend that can affect us both professionally and personally - Social Engineering.

This session will explain social engineering and will look at the things social engineers use to trick users into performing actions that lead to security breaches. It will cover ways to identify and counteract these attacks and discuss recent real-world attacks and the social engineering tricks that made them effective.

Agile for the Business Analyst

Presented by Terrell Smith, Senior Consultant and Trainer, Cprime


Traditional system-development methodologies are rapidly being replaced by more iterative or agile approaches.

Effective business analysis is key to developing those requirements and keeping projects on track. Come along as Terrell explores the contributions of good requirements development in an Agile environment and equips business analysts with the critical thinking, analytical skills, and necessary people skills they need to add value to every Agile project.
