Building Trust and Value in a Digital World – Protect, Govern, Empower

Oceania CACS 2016 Conference, will be hosted by the Papua New Guinea Chapter of ISACA, in association with ISACA Brisbane Chapter. The conference will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, 11 – 13 September 2016.

Explore how to ensure organisations keep creating value, while at the same time safeguarding the necessary information. In today’s interconnected world organisations rely more and more on technology that is increasingly interconnected and accessible to third parties.

This technology brings a lot of business benefits and creates enormous value for individual organisations and the society, as a whole. It’s difficult to imagine these days, not being able to check-in online for a flight or pay a bill on the mobile. But the same openness and connectivity, as we all know too well, is what creates challenges for us as IS Governance, Assurance and Security professionals.
