8:30 - 10:15:  SOC Updates and Reporting – Joel Eshleman

The outsourcing of financial and operational functions to third-parties increases various risks to organizations.  The AICPA has provided a frame work, SSAE 16, for vendors (a/k/a service organizations) to report on internal control structure for outsourced functions. We will discuss “real-life” examples, and review what to ask from your vendors and how to interpret what they provide in the SOC reports.  Lastly, we’ll discuss how best to utilize these SOC reports to monitor risks, vendor controls, and internal effectiveness and efficiencies. 

10:30 - 12:15:  IT Contracts and Vendor Management – Phil Del Bello

Organizations are increasingly contracting with information technology vendors to gain a competitive advantage, enhance product offerings, and lower costs. However, managing vendor contracts and ensuring your organization is assessing new risk related to those contractual requirements can require significant resources. Learn how to identify, manage, and monitor risks such as from breach of contract, error, breach of confidentiality, vendor access, and data loss.

12:15 - 1:00:  Lunch

1:00 - 3:30:  CyberSecurity – Jim Kreiser

This session will focus on current trends and risks related to cyber security and threats.  Discussion will include a review of recent case studies, statistics, and types of attacks that are most prevalent today.  Further, we will review the type of impacts and implications this has on governments, employees, and constituents.  Lastly, we will review key mitigation strategies and measures to try to lower the risk and exposure of cyber threats.

3:30 - 4:30:  IT Risk Assessments – Jim Kreiser

Does your organization truly incorporate or conduct IT risk assessments?  Identify ways to integrate and incorporate IT into the overall ERM framework and model(s).  We’ll discuss specific challenges with IT, review current trends, and determine monitoring activities & leading practices; as well as, review elements of potential IT risk universe(s).  Lastly, discuss various considerations, obstacles, and concerns regarding assessing the IT ‘landscape’, and the various aspects of IT that impact our organizations.
