Risk Management: Methodologies & Best Practices in Economy Crisis Times: to DO or not to be
Risk management has been around for thousands of years. In recent years, we witness an accelerated development, growth and popularity in corporate and IT governance that is applied to strategic, financial, operational, compliance and IT risk. A part of this development derives from local and international regulatory requirements. Another part derives from BOD and management approach of achieving the organizational goals in economy crisis times and the need to adapt the organization’s resources accordingly.
The session will explore common concepts and approaches concealed behind different organizations cultures, taking risk management global to derive values of strategic, financial, operational, compliance and IT risk, so organizations can manage risks.
The session will focus on risk management as a frontline governance tool and discuss the most appropriate manner in which to select and implement a risk management strategy. The session will explain why implementing a risk management process within a framework encourages participation from all employees and can mature into a corporate discipline.Doron Ronen, Deputy President and Professional Committee chair at IIA-Israel

Auditing Cyber Governance: Putting the Elephant in the Fridge!
Cybersecurity is more about people and less about technologies.

Learning from the Best: Matching Actual Technical Security Towards Regulations and Audits
In this informal talk, we will walk through a typical IT systems audit process in an average organization, and will try to look at it from the auditable technical team perspective. How the internal IT sees that ? Is it always a nightmare for them ? Will they ever say “hi” to an auditor, if they are not obliged to ? Put it the other way around: once we cut the usual politeness, technically speaking, is there a way, internal IT can benefit from an onsite systems audit ? May it ever happen, that the internal IT is happy to see an auditor ? In fact, it may, and in fact – in many cases, external and internal audits become actual partners for technical teams. It’s just about the way, how you focus your trigger. In this short and informal walkthrough, we will try to see by real life examples, yours truly has been a part of, how things may be done differently, and maybe, if we are lucky, pick up a point or two.Viktor Larionov, Advisory Committee Member at CyberCentral
