ISACA´s 20th European Computer Audit, Control and Security –EuroCACS- conference will be held 19-22 March 2006 in London, England. The world´s leading conference for IT assurance, security and governance, EuroCACS provides a forum for more than 350 professionals to discuss today´s most important issues, challenges and opportunities.
Martin Curley, global director of IT innovation and research, Intel Corporation, will deliver the keynote address, titled ´Adding Value through IT Governance´. Curley plans to introduce a control loop and maturity model approach for optimizing the value delivered from IT investments and share best practices.
“Each year, our goal is to create a program that successfully tackles the topics important to our attendees”, said Paul Williams, past ISACA international president. “This year, for example, we have added an entire stream dedicated to IT risk management topics and compliance issues”.
The conference consists of more than 35 sessions divided into four session tracks:
IT Governance-Topic sessions are designed to provide a perspective on IS and technology at the strategic level to enable well-informed planning and resource decisions, transparency in actions and the delivery of stakeholders´ expectations.
IT Assurance-Each session combines audit methodology with technical skills and knowledge to provide assurance that risks arising from the use of technology are managed properly.
Information Security-Sessions present key elements of effective security management practices within an organization’s overall security program, and will help practitioners prepare a business case to take security to the next level.
Risk Management and Compliance-Track sessions present the concepts of risk management, address how to apply them for an organization´s benefit, and discuss the impact of regulatory compliance across an IS audit program.
