Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 17, 2014
Modulo, a leading provider of Technology Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced two events that further its thought leadership to help next generation CSOs, CISOs and Digital Risk Officers responsible for the convergence of cyber security, physical security and operational technology processes.
Modulo will a host a live webinar today at 11:30am ET featuring industry thought leaders Doug Powell and Steve Hunt exploring the topic "Is Security Unachievable?". Modulo will also demonstrate its Risk Management Automation solutions at ASIS International, to be held September 29-October 2, 2014 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
Additionally, Modulo customer Doug Powell will speak to this important topic in his ASIS International session titled “Integrated Risk Management: The New Reality.”
Managing security risk in today’s complex environment requires an integrated and automated risk management approach including: IT security (networks, cloud services and mobile devices); OT (such as SCADA and ICS systems); and physical security (such as access control and video surveillance). Organizations that are governed by the new converged Digital Risk Management approach are less likely to experience breaches to private consumer or company proprietary data, less likely to experience downtime to their systems, less likely to experience harmful physical security incidents, and less likely to experience compliance failures, regulatory fines and lawsuits that impact shareholder value. Boards at every organization are waking up to this new reality.
What: Live Webinar titled "Is Security Unachievable?" As we move toward interconnected, smart systems, security professionals must play a focused role in enterprise risk management. This webinar addresses the continually increasing complexity of the environment in which security professionals operate, in light of the Snowden breach, the Internet of Things, cyberhackers, and looming national threats. The debates explores the possibility of achieving true security and gives some practical, actionable recommendations for modern age security risk management, such as: Does physical security have any impact on information protection? Is it possible for IT, operational technology, and physical security to work together? Can an integrated process and program ensure security meets business objectives?
When: Wednesday, September 17, 11:30am ET

What: Educational session titled “Integrated Risk Management: The New Reality.” Security risk assessment for critical infrastructure has traditionally followed two paths, mirroring a distinct separation between IT and traditional security management. But IT infrastructure and traditional security concerns are not independent. Operational technology (industrial control systems) has interdependencies with both domains that complicate risk management. Managing security risk in this environment requires an integrated security risk assessment. Protection planning also requires attention to business continuity, emergency management, and disaster recovery planning. Expanded use of IT-based platforms (mobile devices, cloud services) makes risk management more complex. Enhanced governance, risk, and compliance management is needed to achieve effective risk management for critical infrastructure.
