This workshop draws on formal research completed in Maine, plus further research and content to provide a comprehensive review of improved practices regarding users of information systems. It considers employees, contractors, and consultant, together with extensions for customer and supplier access.

Attendees will learn about current approaches to reduce people risks. There are immediate and low-cost ways to reduce risks, measure, and pinpoint areas where the organization can improve. The presentation then addresses the five specific strategies to make improvements.
