Anticipating and Mitigating Risk: Keeping Data Secure and Organizations Protected

Eighty percent of organizations expect a data breach, ransomware or other cyberattack this year, according to the 2017 State of Cyber Security Report. The #wannacry attack in May showed how easily thousands of computer networks worldwide can be crippled in just moments.

Governance, risk and control (GRC) professionals are on the front lines of keeping data secure and organizations protected. To help them stay abreast with the latest techniques and tools for cyber-resiliency, ISACA and The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) will present the 2017 Governance, Risk and Control Conference, 16-18 August 2017, in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, USA.

The GRC Conference is expected to bring together more than 600 practitioners from around the world for more than 40 sessions and workshops led by globally recognized experts, such as John Sileo, CSP, author and consultant on managing privacy and reputation in an economy plagued by digital overexposure. Sileo, CEO of The Sileo Group, will present the opening keynote address, “The Cyber Blacklist: Top Threats and Countermeasures for Data Security.”

“Auditors play a critical role in guiding organizations toward an integrated governance, risk and compliance capability,” said Theresa M. Grafenstine, CIA, CISA, CGEIT, CRISC, CGAP, CGMA, CISSP, CPA, board chair of ISACA, and Inspector General of the U.S. House of Representatives. “However, to be most effective, auditors must first develop positive relationships with leadership and staff. This conference will help attendees improve their professional demeanor and ability to influence in their companies, in addition to sharpening their technical skills.”

GRC Conference sessions will be grouped into four hot-topic tracks:

  • Attributes for Professional Improvement and Advancement
  • Privacy/Security in the Technology World
  • Integrated Auditing / GRC
  • Deep-dive Interactive Discussions

“Internal audit plays a crucial role in not only ensuring organizations have the controls in place to safeguard against or respond quickly to risks such as a cyberattack, but also to ensure these same organizations will remain resilient as risks will always be present,” said IIA President and CEO Richard F. Chambers, CIA, QIAL, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA. “With the recent global ransomware attacks, it’s imperative that those in the GRC field stay one step ahead by continually seeking out the latest thinking, tools and technology available.”

Additional keynote speakers include:

Larry Harrington, VP of Internal Audit at Raytheon Co., who will discuss internal auditing in a risk-heightened, changing world.

Dick Finnegan, CEO of C-Suite Analytics, who will key in on leadership skills, particularly building trust.

The event also features two pre-conference workshops: COBIT® NIST Cybersecurity Framework and the updated COSO ERM Framework and ISO 31000.

Attendees can earn up to 18 hours of CPE credits. For more information, visit ISACA or The IIA.
