Internal auditors play a vital role in their organization’s strategies and daily activities. Your department’s audit plan should be a well-balanced examination that covers regulatory requirements and aligns key risk areas within the organization. However, in today’s fast changing environment, plans change and the needs of the organization may evolve rapidly. Has your support of the organization kept pace with those changes? Should you make changes to your audit plan to ensure coverage of new risks? Also, do you know what new elements should be included in your 2014 plan?
The objective of this presentation is to help internal audit professionals identify emerging trends in need of attention so that auditors can better execute the department’s strategic focus on risk.

Internal Auditors are often the first line of defense in a company’s fight against fraud and corruption. Indeed, Internal Auditors are often called upon to “pivot” when a routine internal audit unearths red flags that may be indicators of fraud, corruption or misconduct.
This presentation is intended to provide internal auditors with:
•Knowledge of investigative techniques
•The ability to recognize fraud or corruption indicators
•Tools to respond to red flags

As a manager, you are likely adept at handling crises on the job. But how do you handle people in crisis? Whether positive or negative, any life-altering event can affect how your employees work, and as the boss, you may be the last person to know.

Join Ann Butera, President of the Whole Person Project, Inc. and Protiviti in this webinar to discuss how to mitigate the effects of your employees‘ personal lives on their work lives. We will discuss how the inherent boss/employee relationship can lend itself to misunderstanding, how to recognize the symptoms and warning signs of employees’ crises, and how you can adjust your management style to deal with this.
The World has forever changed. eCommerce is no longer a nice to have…it is a necessity. We live in a very noisy world where technology has changed the way we buy. Time, context and attention are the new currency.

Infosec is known for constantly telling IT to "patch your stuff" to prevent getting compromised. Scan reports with a bunch of red are kicked over the wall, and scary reports showing thousands of vulnerabilities are an all-to-frequent result of a vulnerability assessment. But these scan reports are often lying about the true severity of the vulnerabilities, which creates more work for everyone and leaves Infosec crying wolf more often than it should. In this talk, we take a closer look at the problem with vulnerability ratings and how to have IT fail less by having to patch less, while simultaneously being more secure.

Many enterprise organizations are moving beyond antivirus software, adding new types of controls and monitoring tools to improve incident prevention, detection, and response on their endpoints. Unfortunately, some of these firms are doing so by adding tactical technologies that offering incremental benefits only.
So what’s needed?
A strategic approach that covers the entire ESG endpoint security continuum from threat prevention to incident response. A truly comprehensive solution will also include advanced endpoint security controls that reduce the attack surface and tight integration with network security, SIEM, and threat intelligence to improve threat detection and response processes.
Join ESG senior principal analyst Jon Oltsik, Intel Security, and Bufferzone on a webinar on July 21 at 10am PT/1pm ET to learn more about next-generation endpoint security requirements and strategies.

The results of the 2016 Cyber Resilience Survey confirm much of what we already suspected about the changing nature of the cyber threat and the way that cyber criminals have found new ways past corporate perimeter security. The increased difficulty of breaching perimeter security and the increased human resources available to cyber criminals has combined to produce a new point of attack. This is focused on the weakest link in the corporate security chain, which is now human beings rather than technology. The research shows clearly that phishing and social engineering is now the single top cause of cyber disruption, with over 60% of companies reporting being hit by such an incident over the past 12 months.
In this webinar, we will be looking at some of the findings from the study, and discussing what actions organizations can take to help improve their cyber resilience.
As the business landscape redefines itself with the adoption of big data, mobile computing and social media, traditional Security Operations Centres (SOC) that only monitor an organisation’s network no longer provide adequate protection.

Equipped with complex tools, strict processes, and experienced security analysts, a Next Gen SOC provides real-time and actionable intelligence, to better protect your organisation from the latest threats.
