Urs Fischer, ISACA/IT Governance Institute (ITGI) IT ERM Project Leader and Head of Corporate IT Governance and Risk Management at Swiss Life comments,"Risk IT provides the missing link between enterprise risk management (ERM) and IT risk management and control, fitting in the overall IT governance framework of the IT Governance Institute and building upon all existing risk-related components within the COBIT and Val IT frameworks."
Urs Fischer will be discussing the need for risk management and ITGI's upcoming Risk IT framework at EuroCACs 2009, organised by ISACA from 15-18 March 2009 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Frankfurt, Germany.
Alongside Urs Fischer, Michael Morgenthaler, Deputy Data Protection Officer at SAP AG, will be looking at the contradictory requirements of data protection and privacy legislations at home and away, as well as how to manage and handle personal data under EU Laws. Also in the IT Risk Management and Compliance stream, Adam Bosnian from Cyber-Ark will be discussing how to make privileged identities auditable in order to meet security policies and compliance regulations, giving real-world examples.
Adam Bosnian - VP Marketing and Product Development said, "With so many recent public breaches being attributed to badly managed privileged IDs and with the recent audit guidelines being introduced we are going to see companies and Government departments having to pay more attention to managing privileged IDs."
Other speakers in this stream include: Stephane Geyre, Corporate Head of Risk Management at Reed Elsevier; Gaelle Pertuiset, Corporate Risk Management at Reed Elsevier; and Stefan Weiss, Director of KPMG Germany. EuroCACs will feature 40 sessions divided into four streams: Information Security, IT Risk Management and Compliance, IT Audit, and IT Governance.
EuroCACS attendees can also register for workshops on topics such as using the COBIT and Val IT frameworks, and spreadsheet auditing.
