IT Auditing: Principles and Practices

As computing power has advanced, entities have become increasingly dependent on technology to carry out their operational requirements and to collect, process, maintain and report essential data. This reliance on electronically encoded data and on the systems that affect managerial decisions are a major concern of audit professionals. Consequently, Information Technology (IT) auditors examine the adequacy of controls in information systems and related operations to assure effectiveness and efficiency in business processes. In addition, among other assurance services, IT auditors evaluate the reliability of computer generated data supporting financial statements and analyze specific programs and their processing results. To ensure maximum value delivery from audit area assessments, oversight committee members need an evaluation methodology that enables confidence in the work performed by IT auditors. This speech/presentation conveys the use of accepted information criteria to determine appropriate enterprise-wide IT due diligence.

Information Security Incident Response: Controlling Mayhem

Seeking to preserve electronically encoded evidence implies an incident or event has occurred that will require facts extrapolation for presentation as proof of an irregular, if not illegal act. Anticipating potential breach scenarios requires information security management proactively construct incident response and forensic investigation capabilities considering legal imperatives. Consequently, procedures addressing the infrastructure and processes for incident handling should exist within the security response documentation inventory. My speech/presentation addresses the management of information security incidents.
