Keynote Address

Keeping it Positive: Proactive Auditing to Reduce Enterprise Risk

 

Keynote Theresa GrafenstineThe Honorable Theresa Grafenstine
Inspector General
U.S. House of Representatives
with 2014-15 ISACA International President Robert Stroud

Whether in the private sector or in government, badly designed Web-based programs and systems that do not meet user expectations, or fail completely, make for bad press and justifiable criticism. The Honorable Theresa Grafenstine advocates that, going forward, auditors take a more proactive role in overseeing major private and public IT projects. Join her for an interview conducted by Rob Stroud, and gain her unique perspective on how proactive, user-risk-centric audits can help avert future missteps that adversely impact bottom lines and end-user relations.

The Honorable Theresa M. Grafenstine CISA,CGEIT,CRISC, CIA, CGAP is responsible for planning and leading independent, non-partisan audits, advisories, and investigations of the financial and administrative functions of the U.S. House of Representatives. She also serves as a director on the IP3 Standards and Accreditation Council, and as an audit committee member for the Department of Defense IG and the Pentagon Federal Credit Union and in other key government and oversight roles.
