Integrating Emerging Technology Threats in Your Annual Risk Assessment - ITP265

MIS Training Institute
MicroTek Computer Lab SF
655, Montgomery St

San Francisco,
ZIP: 94111

In this three-day seminar, you will learn about the latest vulnerabilities and controls and how to incorporate emerging technology into the annual audit risk assessment process. You will begin with an overview of the annual risk assessment process and its deliverables. After the overview the seminar will specifically focus on various emerging technologies discussing the vulnerabilities associated with each as well as a few of the possible controls that could reduce the likelihood and impact should the vulnerability be exploited.

There will be a series of class and group exercises to discuss various technologies in order to reinforce the annual risk assessment process and aid you on how to evaluate the impact of these new technologies and regulations surrounding them may impact the annual risk assessment and audit priority weighting for the year ahead.

You will take away a general understanding about these newer topics and how to protect and assess them. The exercises will help focus you on how you might consider developing a risk assessment and possible mitigation strategy for various technologies currently deployed in your organization, or that may be in the near-term.
