Over the past five years, security in testing has moved from an ancillary concern to a primary focus. In this presentation, attendees will learn through presented examples how to:
- take a proactive approach to including security in communications before, during, and after the test experience
- analyze current communications (e.g. handbooks, candidate agreements) for security language
Presenters Chuck Friedman, PhD, Jennifer Semko, JD, and O'Neal Hampton will take an in-depth look at the steps to achieve these objectives and discuss how to proactively create a culture of security for your candidates and stakeholders.
