ATLANTA -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Modulo, a leading provider of Technology Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced the company is a gold sponsor of next week’s ISACA 2013 North American Information Security and Risk Management (ISRM) conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, 6-8 November 2013 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Modulo experts will present sessions on three innovative trends in IT GRC: “Shadow IT,” “Business Continuity Management” and “Enterprise Risk Management.”
Soon as much as 90% of a company’s IT budget will come from outside the IT department. It is therefore a business imperative for IT security and risk professionals to understand and embrace the rapid growth of “Shadow IT” - a term used to describe IT systems and solutions deployed within organizations by departments outside the IT department. Shadow IT can serve as an important source of innovation but it can also present significant risks to an organizations information security. Attendees will learn techniques to best control Shadow IT without stifling it, including: building risk councils with other business units, setting up risk surveys and assessment programs, understanding risk analytics to gain visibility into business impact, and supporting scale and flexibility needs.
