The ISO Bad Day List

Last reviewed: March 2017

Now that you have a mentor and you are meeting on a regular basis, you may need some ideas for things to talk about. Here are just a few ideas to get you started. 

The ISO Bad Day List

  1. Who can I call for forensic help?
  2. I'm a new ISO and I just had a breach...what do I do next?
  3. What companies specialize in breach notification or post-breach support?
  4. I want to provide identity theft prevention, what's the best way to do that?
  5. I've been given a project to implement and manage - how do I do that?
  6. My users are constantly being phished. How can I better educate students, faculty, and staff?


The Mentoring Toolkit includes additional ideas for conversation starters.
