Cybersecurity challenges ranging from the global skills shortage to
increasingly sophisticated threats are plaguing enterprises today and
will be featured topics at ISACA’s European Computer Audit, Control and
Security (CACS)/Information Security and Risk Management (ISRM)
Conference in Barcelona, Spain. Held 28 September-1 October 2014, the
conference will bring global experts together to examine advances in
assurance, risk and cybersecurity, and provide guidance to help
attendees face these challenges.
Keynote Speaker Simon Singh, Ph.D., scientist, encryption expert and
best-selling author, will give his most advanced insights on encryption
for cybersecurity and data privacy, and will demonstrate an original
World War II-era Enigma encryption machine in his opening address,
“Cracking the Cipher Challenge.”
“I am looking forward to ISACA’s EuroCACS/ISRM 2014, where I will be
talking to the delegates about the rich and vital history of information
security,” said Singh. “This goes back many centuries, and includes
moments when cracking codes changed the course of history.”
Closing Keynote Speaker Michael Woodford, former president and CEO of
the Olympus Corporation and author, will discuss how he worked his way
up over 30 years at Olympus to become CEO, only to be dismissed two
weeks later after blowing the whistle on the company’s US $1.7 billion
accounting fraud. He will discuss leadership and ethical capitalism in
his address, “Corporate Governance in the Real World.”
ISACA—a global association serving 115,000 information systems
governance, assurance, risk and security professionals, will offer more
than 40 sessions in four tracks
at the conference: Assurance, Cybersecurity, Risk and
Privacy/Compliance. Session topics include cyberattack response, big
data, Internet of Things and cloud adoption.
ISACA is the exclusive host sponsor of the Global CyberLympics
World Finals, which will be held concurrently with the conference.
Global CyberLympics is an international online cybersecurity competition
that tests the skills of information security and assurance
professionals in teams of four to six people in areas including ethical
hacking, computer network defense and computer forensics. Global
CyberLympics is run by EC-Council Foundation, a nonprofit ethical
hacking organization established in 2011.
Optional workshops will offer training on cyberattacks, pen testing,
privacy in a global environment, cloud computing and audit. A
pre-conference workshop will help attendees prepare for the new Cybersecurity
Fundamentals Certificate exam, and a COBIT 5 Foundation Course
workshop will help them prepare for the COBIT 5 Foundation Exam.
“The pace of change and swift evolution of technology requires us to
reexamine how we look at privacy, assurance, risk management and
cybersecurity,” said Ramsés Gallego, CISM, CGEIT, CCSK, CISSP, SCPM, Six
Sigma Black Belt, international vice president of ISACA and security
strategist and evangelist at Dell Software. “The insights gained at
EuroCACS/ISRM in Barcelona will help us, as a global society and
individual professionals, better understand the challenges today and the
solutions needed for tomorrow. This is a not-to-miss opportunity in a
