Topic - Auditing Cybersecurity
With all the breaches making headlines around the world, executive management is expecting more than ever before from Internal Auditing (IA) to provide assurance that the organization’s cybersecurity program is effective.

We can provide the value our executives are demanding if we audit cybersecurity properly.

Topic - Digital Disruption
Over the last 3 years the phrase ‘digital disruption’ has been repeated several thousand times by C – Level executives, directors and VPs across the IT industry. Most people either do not fully understand the concept of digital disruption or go about implementing it so haphazardly that it ‘adversely disrupts’ the organization and ultimately fails to deliver on its initial promise.
This presentation seeks to provide a set of logical steps then thinking about digital disruption, ensuring the business needs remain relevant and central to all planned changes, and ultimately ensure changes are readily adopted across the organization.
Speaker - Jerry Sto. Tomas - CISO, VP of IT Security and Compliance - Apria Healthcare
Topic - "Maintaining Agility and Security in the Cloud"
As organizations continue to embrace the cloud to achieve agility and flexibility, visibility and control in the cloud will continue to be a concern. Is it really secure and worth the risk? How can you manage it in a fast and evolving Internet economy?
Jerry will present the three fundamental cloud security strategies that enable businesses and help improve overall cyber risk management in a convoluted regulatory world.
