NJ ISACA Membership Meeting, Certification
Recognition, and Holiday Gala
Tuesday, Nov 28, 2017, 5:30 - 9:00 PM
515 US Highway Route 1 South, Iselin, NJ 08830
Please join us to network with fellow IT audit, governance, security, risk management, and assurance professionals. Our keynote speaker will be Rob Clyde, ISACA Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Clyde Consulting LLC. Mr. Clyde will discuss “Cyber Future: Security and Privacy Doomed?” New technology arrives at a breathtaking pace that amazes us – yet also scares us. At the same time, attackers are becoming more innovative and not only stealing and selling information, but also holding data and systems for ransom. Security becomes more challenging and privacy may be doomed. Security, risk, and assurance professionals struggle to keep up and have to fight the natural instinct to just say “no” to new things.
