Cybersecurity and Corporate Governance Challenges are Featured Topics at ISACA’s EuroCACS/ISRM Conference in Barcelona

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 fantastic city.”

Registration for the conference is open at www.isaca.org/eucacs-isrm2014. A US $220 discount is applied to registrations before 6 August.
