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

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.

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.

With the news Yahoo! was breached in 2014 and 500 million user accounts were potentially compromised, this breach became the biggest in history to date. However, the damage extends far beyond Yahoo! properties where the digital identities of users could be compromised on other sites, business documents leaked and other harm could come for users who don’t take immediate steps.
This talk will cover not only the breach, but the aftermath in what users and enterprises should do to protect themselves over breaches affecting other companies.
State Garden, a top producer of salad greens in the northeastern U.S., had two serious cybersecurity issues that needed to be addressed:
1.) Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints on the company’s network were undetectable.
2.) Vulnerability Assessment (VA) scans were missing mobile Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) systems that come and go from the network.
Both issues were creating an attack surface that was increasingly harder to monitor and protect.
Billy Lewis, State Garden Director of IT, will share the challenges he faced to:
•Maximize efficiency of limited IT security resources and personnel
•Protect company assets from unauthorized or non-compliant devices connecting to the network
•Automate endpoint compliance and remediation
•Orchestrate multisystem security
In addition, Lewis will explain the role the ForeScout-Rapid7 solution played in reducing the attack surface and accelerating remediation on State Garden’s network.
IT organizations have hit a breaking point in siloed management tools to address one of the most critical issues today - cybersecurity hygiene. In particular, numerous point solutions targeting the endpoints drive cost, complexity, and other challenges. New investments in cloud, distributed workforces and increasing numbers of connected devices only exasperate this problem. Addressing cybersecurity hygiene means that critical actions must be made on demand versus scheduled. Teams must also have confidence that assessment results and remediation actions are complete.
Come learn about the key issues why cybersecurity hygiene fails in most organization. We’ll discuss in depth how the platform approach and speed of Tanium are poised to fix this critical problem. Eric Hanselman, 451 Chief Analyst, and Erik Kristiansen, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Tanium will discuss.
