Abstract:
All too often we hear about attacks and data breaches against numerous companies. Many of these attacks succeed even when the companies have successfully passed numerous IT security audits or are deemed compliant according to industry standard frameworks and regulations.  This talk will discuss some of the gaps seen between audit controls and implementation.  We’ll discuss practical ways to bridge these gaps and hopefully improve the risk posture of your organization.
