SAI Global reaffirms commitment to cybersecurity through gold sponsorship of ISACA’s CACS Conference

May 1, 2017

As part of an ongoing commitment to supporting organisations manage digital risk across the enterprise and extended vendor network, SAI Global is delighted to be a gold sponsor of ISACA's 2017 North America Computer Audit, Control and Security (CACS) Conference which takes place from May 1st - 3rd in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

In today's international marketplace, addressing corporate and information security risks and meeting compliance obligations has become increasingly complex, and the cost of failure high. Cybersecurity and risk management is at the forefront of enterprise priorities and keeping abreast of the latest developments across this ever-changing risk landscape is essential.

SAI Global offers a suite of technology, governance, risk and compliance management software solutions including IT Risk Manager, which was named SC Magazine's recommended traditional GRC product and was awarded a 5-star rating by cybersecurity specialist Peter Robinson of SC Media (referred to in the review article as Modulo). IT Risk Manager, which SAI Global will be showcasing at CACS, is flexible, scalable, and affordable, enabling information security professionals to take an intelligent approach to the daily challenges of managing corporate and information security risk.

ISACA’s CACS conference provides information security professionals with a valuable opportunity to share ideas and experiences as well as hearing from industry experts on future trends and best practice within the rapidly evolving digital risk landscape. Technology innovation has driven an exponential number of benefits for organisations, but these benefits have also come with rapidly evolving digital risk. Keeping on top of the latest developments, future trends and best practice by attending events such as CACS is essential to ensure efficient ongoing digital risk management.
