TOPIC: Cybersecurity Trends and Threats

Reports of large scale data breaches and system hacking seem to be in the news almost daily. This has lead to many new rules and regulations being introduced at a very rapid pace. "What are the current threats?", "What are other companies doing about them?", and "What should I be doing?" are just a few of the common refrains heard from business leaders today. John and Kiel will answer these questions (and many more) by decoding industry "jargon" and giving attendees a basic vocabulary which will allow them to be asking the right questions for their specific organization.

Crowe Horwath is a public accounting, consulting, and technology firm with offices across the globe. Crowe's Technology Risk practice offers a variety of services to help your organization improve its security posture, including: IT risk assessments, IT controls examinations, vulnerability and penetration assessments, network and system security assessments, technical forensics, incident response solutions, business continuity plan development, and information security and privacy assessments.

John and Kiel are Senior Managers at Crowe Horwath. Their areas of concentration include: SOC (Formerly SAS 70) examination readiness and reporting, IT Risk Assessment / Internal Controls Review, FDICIA / FFIEC / GLBA Assessments and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance.
