Edward Pereira: The Unquantifiable Tsunami of Cyber Threats

This presentation will provide an overview of the current threats that our organizations are facing, as they relate to cyber risks.

The talk will touch on well-known issues such as physical threat vectors to computer systems and networks, as well as newer threats such as vulnerabilities to the Internet of Things (IoT), especially physical security systems on the net.

Using GRC tools to align the organization’s strategic goals and risk management efforts to maximize impact


Date:Wednesday, 25th October 2017
Time:12:00 - 2:00PM
Cost:ISACA Members - $25; Future Members - $30; Students - $20 (Students - Please bring valid student ID)

Location:ACL Services Ltd., 980 Howe Street, 2nd Floor

Light lunch is included.

Presentation overview:
Risks management functions (ERM, legal, compliance, internal audit, cyber security, safety, quality) have traditionally operated in silos with little or no coordination with their strategy and planning counterparts. This has not only resulted in the diminishment of their impact on the business but also caused duplication of efforts and added an excessive burden on the business. By focusing on risk prevention rather than developing a healthy risk appetite to take advantage of market opportunities, risk management functions have gained the reputation of business inhibitors rather than enablers. Risk Management activities should ultimately enable the organization to properly balance risks and rewards in order to successfully take 'safe' risks in pursuit of its strategic objectives. In this session, we will explore how GRC technology can be used to:
• Align risk management activities with strategic goals
• Coordinate the work of disparate risk functions to avoid duplication of efforts
• Focus the scope of risk management activities in support of strategic objectives
• Learn how to automate risk assessment, risk assurance, and risk reporting activities
• Accurately and clearly report on risk performance and the achievement of strategic objectives
• Achieve strategic impact within the organization

What the audience would expect:
Audience members will have the opportunity to:
• Participate in a live-run data analytics simulation to measure their strategic impact within the organization.
• View a benchmarked report for each participating audience member that ranks and relates them to other session participants.
• Take away a set of KPIs on strategic value delivery that may be measured and communicated to management on an ongoing basis.

Any other information
• Bring a laptop
