Speaking for me is a great way to interact with a lot of people at once. There is nothing like seeing an audiences's reaction to a statement, and deciding where to go from there. My past speaking engagements have almost exclusively been in the area of information security and privacy and information systems auditing and control. I can cover a variety of topics and incorporate technical, organizational and management aspects. If appropriate for the setting I can also include social, ethical, and public policy issues.
Information Systems Audit (grad/undergrad university course)
I developed and taught an undergrad and graduate cross-listed course in Information Systems Audit in the Spring of 2005, for the School of Management, University at Buffalo, SUNY. I taught the course a total of four spring semesters (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008) during with time class size went from 15 to 60 students.
"Privacy and Security Today: Are You Paranoid Enough?"
This is a speech I gave at a MBA Graduate Symposium & Honors Convocation. Being twenty minutes in length there wasn't sufficient time to cover a subject as board as the title implies. It could have easily been two hours or more. In particular I touched on the topics of unintended consequences and ethics as it relates to information technology.
ISSA & ISACA chapters - various
As president of my local chapters, I was frequently called upon to chair meetings, emcee events, give presentations, and occasionally fill in for speakers who had to cancel last minute. I also led each of the (ISC)2 CBK domain review sessions (most domains multiple times) over the many years my ISSA chapter offered CISSP review sessions, and also led CISA review sessions when my ISACA chapter offered them.
