Policy is the corner stone of any risk-based security programme. Policies are put in place not only to govern the way organisations operate, but also to mitigate risks, and as such require board level backing and sign-off. Yet when it comes to security programmes information risk, both internally and externally, is often presented in terms un-meaningful to the board of directors. Using real world example, this session will present a model for effective risk-based security that engages senior executives.

Internal auditors play a vital role in their organization’s strategies and daily activities.

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?

•Knowledge of investigative techniques
•The ability to recognize fraud or corruption indicators
•Tools to respond to red flags

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.
