SecureWorld 2013The Willamette Valley ISACA Chapter Board is glad to announce another local training event partnership. We have partnered with SecureWorld Expo for the June 2013 event here in Portland. We will be hosting a booth as well as extending a discount for our members and guests.
What is SecureWorld?: A Regional Conference formed to promote the ideals of fostering communication between security professionals and technology leaders, to discuss best practices and to bind that body of thought in a public/private partnership with Government. Security in the 21st Century will be a driving principle for Business and Government and SecureWorld Expo will drive that discussion.
Why has our ISACA Chapter partnered with SecureWorld Expo for this event: This event brings technical information security information to our members, whether they are CISA’s, CISMs, CRISC or CGEITs. We have asked other ISACA chapters who have partnered with SecureWorld in other regions and have heard great feedback. Therefore, since this event aligns with our mission of bringing cost effective and quality CPE to our members, we have decided to embrace this inaugural Portland event.

Featuring Norman Marks,CPA, CRMA, Vice President, Evangelist at SAP

The International Data Corporation predicts that as the number of intelligent communicating devices on the network will outnumber "traditional computing" devices by almost 2 to 1, the way people think about interacting with each other, and with devices on the network, will change.
Mobility has evolved from an issue within a few niche industries and functions to a potential source of innovation across wide-ranging vertical industries, processes and business models. Whether or not you have previously thought of your business as inherently digital, the convergence of these emerging forces offers a new set of tools, opening the door to a new set of rules for operations, performance and competition.
Organizations that lack internal, governed social media and computing channels may find their employees using public tools as a well-intentioned, but risky, alternative. The potential of big data is immense.
Technology limitations that once required sampling or relied on assumptions to simplify high-density data sets have fallen to the march of technology. Long processing times and dependencies on batch feeds are being replaced by on-demand results and near real-time visibility.
What does this mean for boards, executives, and risk and assurance professionals?
Does your organization have an organized strategy and plan for adopting and optimizing the use of technology? This applies both to the technology that is selected and the technology that is not selected.
Is Information Technology working cooperatively with the business? Are priorities shared? Is the business doing its own thing? Is IT a visionary leader, or a reluctant adopter?
Are the risk, compliance, control, and information security functions involved early and throughout the strategy-setting and deployment phases? Are risks and controls thought of before or not until after there is a problem?
Is the business taking advantage of the new technology to improve controls and risk management?
Are you, as risk and assurance professionals, taking full advantage of the potential to improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of your work?
