ACT Webinars for 2011

In January, the Agent's Council on Technology will be introducing a new free webinar-- Implementing an Effective Information Security Program in your Agency. 

This webinar grows out of the work of ACT's Agency Security Best Practices WG which produced the prototype agency information security plan to assist the agency force.  Steve Aronson, chair of that WG, and Ted Joyce, a member of that group, will present the webinar, along with ACT Executive Director Jeff Yates.
In addition, Save Time & Increase Profits with Real Time-- hosted by the Real Time/Download Campaign-- will be returning in January for the first time since September.

The benefits of this superior workflow continue to grow and there are still many agents who have not yet implemented it.  The webinar has been updated where needed and the agent presenters will continue to be Cyndy Smith, Karen Youngman and John Heinsz.
Start the new year off right and plan to sign up for these free, informative ACT webinars.

Implementing an Effective Information Security Program in your Agency
(Sponsored by the Agents Council for Technology)
Live free webinar--Jan 13, 2011, 2:00-3:00 PM EST

The session outlines how federal and state law, as well as good risk management practice, have made it mandatory for agencies to implement an information security program that is anchored by a written security plan. The program covers the security risks agencies face, practical steps to take to manage these risks, and the free tools and articles that ACT has produced to assist agencies with their security program-- including a prototype agency information security plan.
