CBAO Workshop: Building Your IT Risk Management Program

By Vigilize | Tuesday, May 29, 2012 - Leave a Comment
Dan Hadaway founded Infotex in 2000 to help banks comply with the then-new Gramm Leach Bliley Act. Since then he has grown the firm to be a leading Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) that also provides IT Audit services as well as IT Governance consulting. As one of the first to hold a CRISC designation, Dan helped write the review manual for the Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control certification (CRISC), which recognizes professionals for their knowledge of enterprise risk and their ability to design, implement, monitor and maintain information system controls to mitigate such risk. Dan speaks regularly at conferences and conventions, and facilitates an annual IT Security Conference for banks. His often humorous writings have been published in several publications, including Hoosier Banker and BankNotes.

Dan Hadaway Presents at the Community Bankers Association of Ohio

Examiners have made it clear: if your management team understands the risk exposure of information and technology to your bank, you are definitely heading in the right direction. If risk is considered in all technology decision making, an effective IT risk management process has been implemented.

The standards themselves call for a risk assessment of all information assets. Beyond creating an inventory of assets, identifying threats and vulnerabilities, and assessing risk mitigation techniques, an effective risk management program puts the organization on guard in real time, in a manner that avoids threats and vulnerabilities as much as it mitigates the unavoidable risks or unpredictable problems.



The Community Bankers Association of Ohio’s workshop is scheduled for June 12, 2012.

About the Speaker
Dan Hadaway CRISC, CISA, CISM

Dan, who is the President of infotex, an Indiana Bankers Association Preferred Service Provider, comes from an entrepreneurial background which gave him his first experience managing the IT governance process in 1984. Prior to founding infotex in 2000, he had overseen software development projects, e-commerce application development, and many network installation projects. He wrote his first Acceptable Use Policy in 1986, and conducted his first Information Technology risk assessment in 1989.

Dan focused infotex on the banking industry in 2003 when he oversaw the acquisition of Paradigm Shift Security. He now works extensively with banks, engaging in projects ranging from IT Audits to Awareness Training to GLBA Compliance Consulting. He tailors his consulting to any size bank, working on simple user-level policies with banks as small as one location, to providing board and management-level regulatory compliance training for Fortune 500 companies. His primary strength is the use of risk management fundamentals to help banks determine where they need to be on the compliance spectrum.
