Building An Effective Partnership With IT Providers For Audits, Risk Assessments and Compliance

Handout: Will be uploaded when available

Session Summary

Information Technology departments can appear to be complex organizations that are hard to understand and interface with; much less assess risk or compliance. Over the course of this discussion, we will explore ways to partner with IT units to better understand them and their compliance challenges. The presenter and audience will discuss methods to build effective measures of compliance, and create mutually beneficial programs that not only assess compliance, but help to reduce risk. This program is intended to be interactive and the audience will be encouraged to participate. The target audience is auditors and security professionals charged with understanding or assessing IT risks.
