The Human Firewall (Free and Open to Non-members)

When:  Feb 13, 2019 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM (GMT)

IT Security incidents occur simply because people don’t always get it right or otherwise they have some malicious intent. This event aims to consider some of the main actions as audit and risk professionals we can take to address the human threat landscape. The speakers will be drawing from a wide range of experience in the audit and technology sectors and outlining some of the main control areas IT security and audit personnel must review in order to improve controls, be effective leaders and add value at all levels of organisations. Come along and enjoy an opportunity to share experiences and network together in this first joint IIA and ISACA Scotland event.
