The President’s Letter

Greetings Dallas Chapter!  We started out September with our first meeting of the 2012/2013 fiscal year at the Doubletree Hilton near the Galleria and it was a success.  I hope that you have marked your calendar for our next meeting on October 4th at Cityplace Tower.  The theme is “Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity” and we have an interesting set of topics and speakers for you.
Danny Shaw, Southeast Practice Leader of Experis IT Risk Advisory Services will serve as both the pre and lunch meeting speaker.  In the morning, he will be talking about risks associated with using third party service providers for your business continuity plan (BCP).  The topic is titled “Managing Third Party Risks”.  As part of the lunch meeting, Danny’s topic is “Business Continuity Planning - Business Resiliency” where he will be covering the importance of a BCP, how to develop a plan and what technologies you should be evaluating when architecting or implementing a BCP.

Our post-luncheon meeting will feature Tracy Carter, Information Assurance Security Officer at Raytheon.  Her topic is “Are You Prepared for an IT Disaster?” and will provide tips on how to recover from a major outage along with guidance on how to perform a threat and business risk assessment to assist in the development of your disaster recovery plan.

Frank Caliri, VP of Internal Audit at Dean Foods Company, will serve as our CAE spotlight speaker during the lunch meeting and will provide insight into the best practices, organizational structure and types of audits performed by an internal audit department within the food and beverage industry.

In addition to our regular meeting, the month of October will be one of the most exciting times in our chapter’s history.  On October 29th, our chapter will be hosting our largest one day conference.  I’m happy to report that we had a very positive response to our first discounted registration period that ended August 31st.  If you want to save a lot of money for customized training and access to 7 different tracks and 28 concurrent sessions, then you need to register by September 30th.  The cost is only $300 for members; $400 for non-members.  Don’t miss out on this historical event!  Go to http://dallasiia.org/super/ for more details.

Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity

Meeting 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Lunch to start being served at 11:45
Registration begins at 11:30pm

Business Continuity Planning - Business Resiliency
Danny Shaw, Southeast Practice Leader, Experis IT Risk Advisory Services

Objectives:  Business Continuity is not just a phase or project to be implemented when time and resources allow.  It is an ongoing program implemented to protect data, and ensure the integrity and security of the total business, facilities, information and the well-being of employees, which is of paramount importance.

Since 25% of all businesses never reopen after a disaster, are you prepared for this scenario? Planning for an unthinkable disaster is never a pleasant task -- but one that is a very necessary in today’s business environment. Now more than ever, businesses are relying on mission-critical systems to be up and running at all times. New approaches to DR can make a huge difference in recovering data more efficiently and in a useable form.

The purpose of this session is to provide answers to the following questions:

  • Answers to why is a business continuity plan essential in protecting your company's most critical assets? 
  • Uncovering how to plan for your particular company (the right approach for building a continuity capability for your company)? 
  • Identifying what technologies should you be evaluating when architecting or implementing a business continuity plan?

Registration begins at 10:00am

Managing Third Party Risks
Danny Shaw, Southeast Practice Leader, Experis IT Risk Advisory Services

Objectives:  Organizations frequently rely upon 3rd party service providers to deliver a wide variety of services and other activities.  While such arrangements may result in activities being outsourced in their entirety, they do not relieve the ‘hiring’ organizations of the responsibility for managing the activities and identifying/controlling the risks associated with the relationships especially during an outage.

The purpose of this session is to provide answers to the following questions:

  • Gain an understanding of the potential risks that may arise from the use of 3rd party service providers during a BCP exercise
  • Identify the basic elements of an effective 3rd party risk management program during an outage

No prerequisites required.

    Auditing Employee Management is the final book in The IIA Research Foundations’ Auditing Human Resources handbook series.  It offers practical information on:

    • Risks
    • Audit program development
    • Employee performance management
    • HR policies and procedures
    • Safety and security
    • Collective bargaining

    The handbook closely follows the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Total Rewards Learning System regarding the general body of knowledge for HR management.  Included are helpful appendices with key information on employment legislation, employment-related websites, required employment postings, and employee record retention requirements.

    Center for Internal Auditing Excellence
    Beginning of the New School Year

    The IAEP program at UT Dallas is now beginning its 10th year! Our student organization continues to grow as we promote the internal audit profession on campus. This new semester brings many new faces and we are planning several social events so our members can get to know each other.

    Our schedule for this semester is entirely booked with companies hosting a reception with our student organization. Our weekly meetings are well attended with about 30-60 students at each meeting.

    We are also very excited about our two site visits. In September, we visited the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group facilities and learned about the audit group there. October we will be visiting the Southwest Airlines audit group during the company’s Halloween party. We participated last year and it was a lot of fun! These site visits provide the students a great opportunity to network with professionals and learn more about a company’s culture.

    Our student organization also helps place students in internships and full-time position in companies both in the DFW area and nationwide. We have recently added job postings to our website in addition to our online resume book. Both can be accessed at www.utdallasiia.com.

    If you are interested in recruiting on campus or assisting the program in any way, please contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729 or mark.salamasick@utdallas.edu. We are always looking for additional site visits and always welcome sponsors for our weekly receptions.  The resume book for this semester is now available.
