The President’s Letter

Greetings Dallas Chapter of the IIA, and thank you again for another great meeting on December 1st for our Risk Assessment-themed joint meeting with the AGA.  We had a good turnout, and I hope you enjoyed our speakers.  It was a great final meeting of 2011, and I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday season.

It’s hard to believe that 2012 is right around the corner, but we’re looking forward to an excellent 2nd half of the Chapter Year.  For our January meeting, we will be back at CityPlace Conference Center on Thursday, January 5, 2012, for our annual joint meeting with ISACA.  This meeting is always one of our most heavily attended meetings, so please register early, as space will be limited.  Online registration will end at the close of business on Friday, December 30, 2012.

Given the magnitude of the joint meeting with ISACA, we will not have a CAST presentation in January.  Our Pre-Meeting will feature Eric Dietrich from Sunera Business Consulting, who will present a session on “Understanding the Impact of Data Privacy”.

Our CAE Spotlight will feature Janice Harissis, CAE at Texas Instruments, who will briefly discuss a background of her team, industry and best practices at TI.

Our featured luncheon speaker will be Miguel Clarke, a Supervisory Special Agent with the FBI, currently assigned as the supervisor of the Cyber National Security Squad in the Dallas Division.  Miguel will present “Cyber Matters 2011 and Beyond”, a discussion of sophisticated Cyber threats used by advanced adversaries.  This is a riveting topic that will incorporate both IT Audit and Fraud concepts, I’m sure you won’t want to miss it!

Our Post-Meeting will feature Brian Zawata, Director of Consulting Services at Avalution Consulting.  Brian will present “Taking a Closer Look at Business Continuity Planning.”  This session will provide a deeper dive into BCP and Disaster Recovery as well as its evolved use and focus within companies.

Finally, in closing, I would like to thank you for making the first half of the Chapter year a resounding success.  We have had great attendance at monthly meetings, hosted a SMART Seminar, and have had two successful chapter-sponsored CAE roundtables.

I hope you join me in looking forward to 2012, when we’ll continue with our strong monthly meeting lineup, put on two more SMART Seminars, and of course host the ever-successful Fraud Summit in March.

Happy New Year!

Brian Amend

Cyber Matters, 2011 and Beyond
Miguel Clarke, FBI Supervisory Special Agent

Objectives:  "Cyber Matters, 2011 and Beyond" is a discussion of sophisticated Cyber threats used by advanced adversaries.  The primary objective is to draw a distinction between the current state of Cyber Security practices and our probable future.  The present security posture is heavily reliant upon the use of tools and products to provide protection.

This session will provide a forum to

  • Discuss the flaws in present-day methodologies and begin to contemplate workable concepts for increased security through a mature and sophisticated response to the threats against a network or against the data which it contains.

Simply put: network attackers are rapidly increasing in both technical and operational sophistication, comprehensive Computer Network Defense must keep pace in order to effectively mitigate the threat.

No prerequisites required

Miguel A. Clarke has been FBI Supervisory Special Agent for more than 13 years, currently assigned as the supervisor of the Cyber National Security Squad in the Dallas Division.

SSA Clarke has been responsible for Cyber investigations since 2000.  Initially, his primary responsibility was to investigate criminal computer intrusions, violations of Title 18 Section 1030.  SSA Clarke has successfully prosecuted Cyber crimes in both the Northern District and Easter District of Texas.  In 2004, SSA Clarke transitioned to the National Security computer intrusions and has been involved with Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) activity since that time. In 2008, then Special Agent Clarke was promoted to a Supervisor and accepted a position at FBI Headquarters assigned to the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task force (NCIJTF).  In this role, SSA Clarke was responsible for managing National Security investigations at the enterprise level. During that time he worked with '3-letter agency' partners and was instrumental in building the FBI Cyber relationship with the Japanese Government.  SSA Clarke recently returned to Dallas to start new squad dedicated to National Security Cyber investigations.  Cyber National security focuses the FBI's counterintelligence and counter-terrorism efforts upon complex, state-sponsored Cyber threats.

Chapter News

IIA Research Foundation

The Research Foundation has recently issued International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) 2011.  The original edition of this book was written to provide internal auditors with guidance on how to put into practice the set of International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards), which first became effective January 1, 2002.

The underlying structure of the Standards has held up well.  Yet, the professional practice of internal auditing has continued to evolve.  In 2006, the Board of Directors of The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) established an international steering committee to review the existing professional practices framework.  The results culminated in a new framework for internal audit guidance, the IPPF, which was released in 2009 and updated in 2011.

The information in this book is designed to serve as a practical guide for applying the IPPF.  "The “crash course” in this book outlines the specific actions auditors must take to conform to the Standards and the other elements of the IPPF.  In doing so, it:

  • Reviews basic information on the essential elements required for providing effective internal audit services.
  • Discusses in depth those elements representing significant change.
  • Provides specific practical tools and techniques for delivering high quality internal audit services.

The handbook can be ordered online at http://www.theiia.org/bookstore/product/international-professional-practice-framework-2011-1533.cfm. (Item number 1060.2, IIA member price - $50.00, non member price - $75.00).

Certification News from the IIA

Enhancement Coming to IIA Certification Program

Coming in early 2012, an e-fulfillment process will enable the electronic delivery of certificates immediately to those who have achieved the certified status in any of The IIA’s five certification programs. Certified individuals will still have the option of ordering a paper certificate at no additional cost. E-certificates will also provide an added convenience for individuals needing documentation of their successful completion of a certification program.

This improvement enhances The IIA’s ability to effectively service participants in the five certification programs and efficiently streamline internal operational processes.

IIA Certification to Enhance Examination Process for Candidates Worldwide

Effective January 1, 2012, The IIA will implement two changes to streamline the testing process for its certification candidates worldwide. The first change, the removal of the tutorial from the testing environment, provides candidates the ability to familiarize themselves with the computer-based testing process prior to sitting for an exam, thus reducing test anxiety and enhancing exam candidates’ confidence. Candidates will access the tutorial via a link from The IIA’s website, www.globaliia.org. The second change, a reduction of 10 un-scored questions, resulting in a final total of 90 tested questions per part, will affect candidates sitting for the exam. With the removal of the tutorial and the reduction in tested questions, candidates will benefit from an approximate time-savings of 30 minutes, with the testing window being reduced from the previous three-hour time period to a new two-hour and 30 minute time period.

Changes in Store for the Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) Program

The IIA is implementing two key revisions to the CIA program scheduled for 2013. The first will impact the exam structure, reducing the program from four to three exam parts. The second change consists of a realignment of the exam content and question count for each part. Learn more.

IIA Announces the Development of the Certification in Risk Management Assurance™ (CRMA™)

During The IIA’s Governance, Risk, and Compliance Conference in August in Orlando, Fla., IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers, CIA, CCSA, CGAP, announced that The Institute will offer a new certification enabling audit practitioners and other risk-focused professionals to demonstrate their ability to provide advice and assurance to audit committees and executive management on the existence and effectiveness of key risk management and governance processes within their organizations. The Certification in Risk Management Assurance™ (CRMA™) exam will be offered starting mid 2013.

Beginning in October 2011, qualified individuals with knowledge and experience in risk management assurance can apply for the CRMA before the exam launch through a “professional experience recognition” process. Additionally, The IIA will conduct a job analysis study to shape the final content of the exam. More information on the specifics of both of these processes will be available later this year.

In addition to The IIA’s premier CIA® designation, the CRMA will complement The IIA’s suite of specialty certifications, which include the Certified Financial Services Auditor® (CFSA®), Certified Government Audit Professional® (CGAP®), and Certification in Control Self-Assessment® (CCSA®). The CRMA exam ultimately will be translated into multiple languages and the designation offered globally. For more information about the new CRMA designation, visit www.theiia.org/certification/crma.

Frequently Asked Questions
