The May 2020 ISACA Conference of Western New York has been reimagined in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic experience. Times are abnormal and creating uncertainty about the future. Yet, we can take small steps to maintain focus, vigilance, and resiliency in the face of this crisis. Our 2020 Theme continues to be 20/20 Vision: Are You Battle Ready?
In lieu of holding our annual, in-person Control & Compliance Conference, please join us for a 60-minute webinar where San Cannon, the Associate Vice Provost for Data Governance and Chief Data Officer at the University of Rochester, will share key insights on Data Governance in the Age of Uncertainty: Strategy, Operations, and Insights. Don Redman, our Chapter President, will follow with a 30 min General Body Meeting to share the accomplishments of 2019 and the direction for 2020.
While the need for organizations to implement data governance programs is by no means universally acknowledged, even those who do see the value can be stymied by how to make progress when the world seems to be crumbling around them. San will outline the contributions that data governance can make for organizations all along the maturity scale: those that are not yet on board, those who are early in the process, and those who are seasoned practitioners. Join the discussion on the tension between strategy and operations wherein practical tips will be outlined that organizations might undertake to improve their data landscape for the world that will emerge after the crisis as passed.
Sandra “San” Cannon is the first Associate Vice Provost for Data Governance and Chief Data Officer at the University of Rochester. She is responsible for the University’s enterprise-wide data strategy, data policy and process development, and data support services. Prior to joining the University, San worked in data management and analytics in the Federal Reserve System for more than 20 years. In addition, she teaches predictive analytics for undergraduates and conductions research on data organization and dissemination, data quality metrics and outcomes, and applications of data science techniques. She holds a B.A. in economics from the University of California, Irvine, an M.Sc. in economics from the London School of Economics, and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
We look forward to sharing these timely nuggets and hope you will choose to join the conversation on Tuesday, May 12th 11 – 12:30 pm.
As the Western New York Chapter celebrates 40 years, we look forward to versatile online experiences honoring our theme of 20/20 Vision, Are You Battle Ready?
