Event Details

BLOCKCHAIN ​​AND CONSEQUENCES FOR THE AUDIT INDUSTRY

All media are of the opinion that the Blockchain will revolutionize the production process of many industries. But what about the audit sector? What will be the important changes that will need to be anticipated to better prepare for the future?

In order to take stock of this subject, we are pleased to invite you to our next exceptional working session organized by ISACA and GRB, whose theme will be: “Blockchain and the consequences for the audit industry”

This session, which will take place in English, will bring you a new vision on the future of blockchain and will be animated by:

Mike Gault
CEO and Founder of Guardtime
Quantum Computing Engineer
Post doctoral student of the Tokyo Institute of Technology

The presentation will focus on the context in which the Estonian government has come to realize the critical importance not only of the integrity of data but also the integrity of processes, systems and networks. He will then present the blockchain cryptographic basics and describe how the Estonian government and financial institutions are using this technology for cybersecurity and financial audits, infrastructure and internal processes.

more

Event Details

CONTINUITY OF ACTIVITIES NEEDS SECURITY ARCHITECTURE TO REDUCE RISKS AND COSTS

The frequency of cyber attacks continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. By targeting the most vulnerable value chains of organizations, they cause breaches of confidentiality and integrity of information, discontinuities of activities and considerable damage. On the other hand, once considered primarily a purely technological problem, information system risks are now assessed in the context of business risk management and business continuity.

This session will bring you a new vision allowing the optimal cohabitation of cybersecurity with business continuity.

This conference will be presented by

Jeff Primus

Event Details

Business continuity requires security architecture to reduce risk and cost

The frequency of cyber-attacks continues to increase at an unparalleled pace. By attacking the most vulnerable value chains of organizations, they result in information confidentiality and integrity breaches, discontinuity of business activities and huge damages.

Once considered predominantly as a technological issue, the risks related to the information systems are now evaluated within the Enterprise Risk Management scope. On the other hand, traditionally, Business Continuity Management (BCM) is mostly treated as a domain, separated from Information System Security Management (ISSM).

With the rapid explosion of cyber threats, the alignment between BCM and ISSM is now becoming a must for providing management with a holistic view and enabling them to be implemented in organizations where the teams interact closely with each other. It goes without saying that the organizational part of security and BCM is the key for a successful implementation, yet the information system (IS) part needs also to be addressed in an efficient way.

Various standards and frameworks exist to help organizations implementing a BCM, but they lack a strong link with the governance, architecture and security of the IS. In this session, we will introduce very briefly an innovative approach and describe the first steps for the linkage between the two worlds, enabling an efficient implementation of BC based on architecture and secured IS.

more

Event Details

The successful deployment of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) requires the implementation of risk analysis supported by a methodological and repeatable approach. In this context, a large number of organizations suffer from complex and tedious implementation.

Based on these observations, we propose a review of the implementation of the principles set out in ISO 27005 and ISO 27001, allowing you a pragmatic implementation based on best practices.

07febAll DayJeff Primus is interviewed on RTS: Data theft of 800’000 Swisscom customers

more

Event Details

Data theft of 800’000 Swisscom customers : What are the risks that they do not disclose?

Switzerland is not spared, and this type of theft does not only happen to others. It is important to remember that the number of cases of data piracy continues to increase and that the Swisscom case represents only a modest event compared to the billions of personal data compromised via the accounts of Yahoo, MySpace, Ebay , LinkedIn, Dropbox.

As a customer or user, should we worry, since the data stolen from Swisscom is not considered sensitive? The answer is unfortunately yes, since the stolen phone numbers and names are now most likely accessible on the darknet. They attract the greed of a multitude of malicious actors who are willing to exploit them for illicit purposes .
