ISACA’s First-ever Virtual EuroCACS 2020 Conference Highlights Opportunities and Risk of Emerging Technologies
SCHAUMBURG, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ISACA–ISACA’s EuroCACS Conference, taking place 28-30 October 2020 as an online event, will provide education and thought leadership in IT audit, risk, cybersecurity and governance as business technology professionals navigate the transformational roles they play in their organizations. These professionals understand that delivering innovative solutions has become even more important than ever, with many rising to the challenge of increased responsibilities in protecting their enterprises during the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.
EuroCACS sessions, each one hour in length and providing opportunities to earn continuing professional education (CPE) credits, will be divided into tracks covering:
- Governance, Risk and Compliance
- IT Audit
- Security, Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies
- Industry Trends and Insights
Sessions will be posted to the EuroCACS website in real-time as if attendees were at an in-person event, and many will feature a live Q&A with speakers. Attendees will have extended access to the sessions and content so that they may view them at their own pace. Session topics include the business applications of technologies like machine learning, AI, and cloud security; cybersecurity; risk management; scaling Agile methodologies; developing privacy strategy; and culture and ethics in IT governance, among others. Attendees can also learn about future-proofing their careers, avoiding burnout, and developing leadership and soft skills.
The conference keynote sessions will be presented in real-time. Opening keynote speaker Daniel Susskind, a Fellow in Economics at Balliol College, Oxford University, and bestselling author, will share insights into technology’s impact on society in his presentation, “A World Without Work.” Ethical hacker and social engineer FC will provide security lessons for enterprises learned in his breaches of hundreds of banks, offices and government facilities. Jessica Barker, one of the most influential women in cybersecurity, will close the virtual event with her keynote on positively influencing cybersecurity behaviours and organisational culture.
