Monthly Meeting: Building & Maintaining IT Controls (That Make Sense)

July 19, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Date/Time: Thursday. July 19th 12:00pm-1:30pm
Location: Coleman University
Topic: Building & Maintaining IT Controls (That Make Sense)
Speaker: Valerie Riley & Saul Tenzer

What used to be a “nice-to-have” suite of controls, which ensure your SLA’s and other commitments to the business can be met, is now a “must-have”. With regulators placing more and more scrutiny on IT Internal Controls, where do we start building/implementing a suite of controls that both meets the demand of our auditors and regulators and also gives value to the IT Team and business?

We delve into the root cause of the challenges facing companies as their IT landscapes are having to change while considering how to decrease cost and effort while increasing the value from our IT Controls Program.
