Citicus Director, Marco Kapp will be delivering a presentation on "Risk and compliance management - an approach based on real-world statistics" at the 2007 ISACA/NACACS conference in Grapevine Texas in April.
The presentation will explore the essential elements of a robust information risk and compliance management process and will describe a methodology that is based on real-world statistics on risk collected over 12 years by the Information Security Forum.
The approach - automated by Citicus' award-winning web-based software - provides a simple but rigorous way for organizations to conduct workshop-based risk assessments for their critical information systems and consolidate the data for reporting to management on the information risk status of the enterprise.
The presentation will also look at the relationship between risk management activities and compliance initiatives such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Turnbull and Basel II. It will show how a well directed risk management programme can stave off death-by-a-thousand-checklists that is often the result of the current trend for increasing regulation of IT.
