Pre-Conference Tracks

IT Audits and Exams: Preparation, Response, and Future Trends

Every year, your organization spends days, weeks, maybe even the entire year preparing for and responding to your IT audit(s) and examination by your regulator or state. Do you feel like your preparation tactics are as efficient and advanced as they could be? Are you happy with your process to respond, track, and report on observations from engagements? Are you curious where the industry is going with IT audit, assurance, and testing approaches?

Then join us for the IT Audits and Exams: Preparation, Response, and Future Trends pre-conference track at the 2023 KEYS Conference! During these sessions, we will provide recommendations to help you prepare for your IT audit and examinations, discuss current trends in audit methodologies (such as agile auditing), examine best practices for responding to and reporting on findings or observations, address common concerns around the IT audit and exam process, and answer attendee questions.

Tandem Classroom

Do you ever feel like you are not using your Tandem software to its full potential? Do you have dreams and goals about what you want to accomplish with your vendors, business processes, incident response, policies, or risk assessments, but you are unsure where to start, or how you can achieve this with Tandem?

Then join us to level up your Tandem knowledge in the Tandem Classroom Preconference at the 2023 KEYS Conference! This preconference track will focus on teaching you the best way to use your Tandem products to meet your goals. During this session, we will cover best practices for using the following Tandem products:

  • Vendor Management
  • Business Continuity Plan
  • Incident Management
  • Policies
  • Risk Assessment

This track will be facilitated by your very own Tandem Specialists! We will work with you by teaching you how to use Tandem successfully, and then spend time with you to implement these practices in Tandem.
