Tuesday, October 9, 2018 -- Governance in the Age of Cyber
Our IIA NOVA Chapter is very proud to announce a talented speaker for our October 9th Program -- a Practice leader at Deloitte and the keynote speaker of this year's GRC Conference in Nashville Tennessee --Theresa "Terry" Grafenstine, as she presents on the topic of:  

Governance in the Age of Cyber. 
very day, we hear news reports of another organization being breached. We find ourselves asking, “Who’s Next?” The stakes are too high for the board, the C-Suite, and internal audit to wait until after a breach occurs to conduct a post-mortem of the attack. To provide value—and to possibly protect our organizations from failure—governance bodies need to be proactive. Ms. Grafenstine will (1) provide an overview of cyber trends and classic breach tactics, (2) describe what good security and controls look like, and (3) discuss the evolving roles of the board, the C-Suite, and internal audit in the age of cyber.
