As enterprises increasingly rely on IT to succeed, effective management of enterprise risk must be coordinated and integrated with IT risk management. Ensuring that your IT risk management initiative is properly aligned to business strategy and your enterprise risk management program requires a holistic approach where the interdependencies between IT risk and business performance can be easily understood and managed. The goal of this session is to:

-- Describe the link between enterprise risk management and IT risk management & control

-- Discuss the business assessment of IT controls for deficiencies and business risk

-- Give an overview of solution requirements to support an integrated IT and enterprise risk management program
