Mark "Simple Nomad" Loveless
You've installed firewalls. Your anti-virus and anti-spyware is up to date. You patch all of your systems as quickly as possible. The digital wagons have been circled and your perimeter is as tight as possible. Are you secure? Probably not. In fact, "probably not" may be too optimistic. The landscape of the hacker is ever-changing. As new defenses are developed, attackers develop new techniques and chart out new and unique attack vectors to gain access to computer systems. This talk will focus on how attack trends have evolved, where they seem to be heading, and how the security professional cannot simply rely on tried and true techniques to help protect an organization. Expect a frank, open, and lively talk with tales from both sides of the security fence.
Mark "Simple Nomad" Loveless has worked in the computer security field for years. He is the Security Architect for Autonomic Networks, a company currently in stealth mode. Mark is also the founder of the Nomad Mobile Research Centre, a hacker think-tank with an international membership of like-minded security professionals involved in the security industry. Mark has been quoted frequently in the press including such notable outlets such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, and CNN. He is a frequent lecturer and keynote at security conferences worldwide, typically on topics involving computer security and personal privacy.
Keeping America Running: Securing Our Nation's Critical Infrastructure Assets
Sujeet Shenoi, University of Tulsa
Can a criminal entity or terrorist group -- from the other side
of the world -- take out down the Internet and telecommunications
systems? Or launch a worm that disrupts oil and gas pipelines, water
and electric power distribution?
How will America cope if the outages last for days?
The critical infrastructure, which comprises computers, embedded
devices, networks and software systems, is vital to day-to-day
operations in every sector -- agriculture, food, water, public
health, emergency services, government, defense, information and
telecommunications, energy, transportation, banking and finance,
chemicals and hazardous materials, and postal and shipping. Global
business and industry, government -- indeed society itself -- cannot
function if major components of the critical infrastructure are
degraded, disabled or destroyed. This presentation highlights the
challenges involved in securing interconnected critical
infrastructure assets, in particular, the Internet and IP networks,
telecommunications networks, and process control (SCADA) networks
used for oil and gas, water and electric power distribution. Also,
it discusses the importance of designing security solutions that
weave science, technology and policy.
Sujeet Shenoi is the F.P. Walter Professor of Computer
Science at the University of Tulsa. An active researcher with
specialties in cyber security and forensics, Dr. Shenoi is currently
the principal investigator on projects supported by the Departments
of Defense and Homeland Security, FBI, National Security Agency,
National Science Foundation, and U.S. Secret Service.
He is the Chair of IFIP Working Group 11.10 on Critical
Infrastructure Protection, Editor-in-Chief of the International
Journal of Critical Infrastructure Protection, and Director of the
Cyber Security Education Consortium, an NSF ATE Center that is
building a high-tech workforce in the Southwestern United States. He
is the Co-Chair of the FBI's National Steering Committee for the
Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory Program. He is also the
founder of the Tulsa Undergraduate Research Challenge, a nationally
recognized program of scholarship and service. For his innovative
strategies integrating academics, research and service, Dr. Shenoi
was named the 1998-1999 U.S. Professor of the Year by the Carnegie
Spreadsheet Use in Your Enterprise – Conquering the Risks
Doug Berryhill, with Lane Severson assisting, Business Controls Analyst, Compassoft, Inc.
Highly publicized incidents of corporate losses traced to
spreadsheet errors and misuse are driving intense corporate interest
in getting control of spreadsheets and other end-user applications.
And, not surprisingly, government regulations - such as the
Sarbanes-Oxley Act - are driving increased scrutiny of spreadsheet
controls by major auditing firms.
In this presentation, Compassoft will provide specific guidance
on advancements in spreadsheet management best practices and
automation technologies that scale across the enterprise. A
comprehensive spreadsheet control strategy will be outlined that
will reduce risks with a sustainable, automated approach to meet
your financial reporting, internal audit, and regulatory compliance
In this seminar you will learn to:
- Identify sources of
spreadsheet-based risk in your enterprise
- Assess and prioritize
the risk in a structured and automated way
- Quickly find errors and
fraud in critical spreadsheets
- Sustainably control risk based on

IIA Research Foundation
The Research Foundation has recently issued a book entitled
Auditing Human Resources. Human resource management (HR) covers a
broad spectrum of workforce activities. Despite its integral role,
HR is often considered a “soft” area and management may not
understand the inherent risks involved with this function, including
employment law issues, compensation and benefit plan design,
recordkeeping and potential fraud issues. In today’s environment,
some new issues have moved to the forefront in HR, including:
- Executive management ethics
- Skyrocketing healthcare costs
- HR outsourcing
- Baby boomer exodus – labor shortage, aging and diverse
- Knowledge work – managing knowledge workers
An organization should audit the HR function to:
- Perform routine check-up (uncover any unfavorable conditions
and set up a treatment plan)
- Determine how to best align HR operations with
Ensure compliance with federal and state employment regulations
This handbook is an essential tool for internal auditors to
examine the technical and practical dimensions of the HR function
and to create a comprehensive system that adds value to the

Ring in the New Year!
More Programs and Students…
The program at UTD has expanded this past year to include a new
Advanced Auditing program that is taught with the skills necessary
for the audit senior. We have also added a new Assistant Director of
the Internal Audit program, Chris Linsteadt, who is teaching courses
related to external audit with the hopes that some students will see
the differences and advantages of internal audit. Make sure you
introduce yourself to Chris at one of the events. Speaking of events
our annual Fraud seminar that supports the program is planned for
March 28 which is planned to be bigger and better than last year.
Make sure you sign up in advance as it is planned to sell out this
The funding from this event has made it possible to provide
benefits back to the chapter along with funding positions for
teaching assistants who are busy recruiting new students into the
program. In the spring semester, you should see Marndi Church,
Melissa Ewing, John Hall, and Kunaal Sarna who will be assisting
with various events and recruiting more students into the program.
Our biggest issue is still advocacy of the profession and
educating students of the possible careers in internal audit. All of
you can help in the issue by talking to as many students throughout
the year and educating them on the possibilities of careers that
start in internal audit.
As I mentioned in a fall newsletter, we hope to grow the student
chapter to over 200 students by May 2008. All of you have an
opportunity to help in this effort. We have in place a number of
methods to have employers meet students and explain the benefits of
careers in internal audit. So the good news is there are avenues to
recruit students, but you must get them early. A new batch of
students get involved every semester so reviewing the status of who
is available every February and September is a great idea.
To schedule a reception, site visit, interview or just peruse
resumes, contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729 or
The student chapter will have resumes posted after February 8 and
interviews start in mid February. The student chapter website is
