Information Security Governance Explored in Munich Conference

ISACA : 23 August, 2012  (New Product)
ISACA is hosting a conference in Munich examining Information security governance and risk management in September
Information Security Governance Explored in Munich Conference

A recent survey conducted by the global nonprofit IT association ISACA found that - nearly one in four (22%) of the enterprises surveyed have experienced a security breach over the last 12 months and 21% have faced mobile device security issues. The survey also revealed that 17% of respondents thought that data leakages  and inadvertent staff mistakes  were key issues to be addressed, with 15% reporting cloud computing as another ”hot button” IT issue of concern.

The European Computer Audit, Control and Security (EuroCACS)/Information Security and Risk Management (ISRM) conference (10-12 September 2012) will allow professionals to develop their strategies to counter these governance issues.

The EuroCACS/ISRM conference in Munich will give IT professionals of all levels of experience the ability to build their own customised schedule of relevant topics, including: IT risk-based audit programmes and tools; IT risk and exposure management; privacy and data protection issues; and the top IT audit and security issues.

Central to these topics will be the opportunity to discuss the newly published COBIT 5 for Information Security, which provides practical guidance for professionals who are interested in security at all levels of an enterprise.

The presentations and open discussions on
COBIT 5 will include the latest thinking on enterprise governance and management techniques, and provide globally accepted principles, practices, analytical tools and models, to help increase trust in, and derive value from, information systems.

During the three-day conference, Vernon Poole, CISM, CGEIT, CRISC, of Sapphire, and Rolf von Roessing, CISA, CISM, CGEIT, of FORFA AG, will be presenting ”How
COBIT 5 for Information Security Will Provide Your Organisation with More Comprehensive Coverage and Assurance,“ covering issues that include implementing the practical guidance provided in COBIT 5 for Information Security.

Also during the conference, Marcus Alldrick, a senior manager in the Information Risk and Protection division of Lloyd's of London, will be presenting ”Information Security Within a Global Risk Perspective.” During his presentation, Alldrick will help attendees recognise the key risk areas and detail why they have changed over the last two years. He will also demonstrate why information security may not be the number-one board concern, but why, increasingly, its business value is being realised on both a direct and consequential basis.

Von Roessing, a member of ISACA's Framework Committee and Professional Influence and Advocacy Committee, says that the results of the global ISACA survey—2012 Governance of Enterprise IT (GEIT)—confirm the findings of ISACA’s April survey of EMEA professionals.
