Session I Title IT Governance / Oversight with Risk Management and Cybersecurity
Growth and frequency of Governance, Risk, and Control (GRC) discussions are inspiring; however, the increase in GRC failures is alarming, including failures in IT Governance and Oversight. Often, it is far to late to correct GRC problems and many organizations never fully recover. As the cybersecurity risks increase, it is more important than ever to connect risk management with governance and oversight before a problem occurs. But how? Participants in this engaging and interactive session will address real life situations to explore oversight and IT governance practices. Participants will explore the role of the CIO and integration of IT Governance across the organization to ensure IT has good governance, appropriate risk appetite, and sound practices to support the organization’s needs.
Speaker: Dan Grossberg
Starting as a CPA with Peat Marwick’s Private Business Practice, Dan has had a long and diverse career since that role. He then left public accounting to pursue higher education as a career before coming back to join Grant Thornton. A second escape took him through the construction business as a project manager and controller/CFO, but it was not long lived. Y2K brought Dan back to professional services where he used his business process expertise to grow into an IT advisory specialist leading BP’s risk and compliance efforts through the due diligence necessary to minimize disruptions to several business lines.
Since 2000, he has been working in public accounting as an IT assurance and advisory specialist rotating through several roles with Ernst & Young and BDO. In addition to client facing work, Dan was noted for his contributions to internal development at both firms. Key projects included recruiting and retaining staff through the implementation of SOX and Portfolio Management for the global IT transformation.
As a client services professional, Dan specialized in public company audits and ERP implementation risk management. He regularly worked with Fortune 500 IT leaders analyzing the risk and control solutions that affected their business operations and financial reporting solutions. He has worked across all industries including manufacturing, distribution & retail, financial services, government and non-profit, telecommunications, and government contracting.
As a teacher and trainer, Dan has taught at the University level and has been a key contributor to course development and facilitation at Ernst & Young. He has a face for radio and an engaging voice and personality that will keep your audience spell bound!
Dan has been prematurely aged by his three teenage daughters who are smart and beautiful and always pushing the envelope. When he is not working for his clients or attending to the girls, he rides his Victory Vegas motorcycle and relaxes in his hot tub thinking big thoughts.
