SMART POLICING - Malta's experience in the fight against cybercrime

Presentation Overview

Malta is currently the smallest EU Member State in both population and area. Malta's small size hasn't, however, protected the Maltese population from new crimes that are being brought through the digital age. This presentation will provide an overview of the Malta Police Force's efforts in tackling cybercrime by providing practical examples of proactive and reactive measures that have been introduced throughout the past years.

The presentation will also serve as an eye-opener for the private industry about the potential ‘new’ risks that are being faced due to this ever-increasing phenomenon as well as providing basic tips on how cyber-incidents can be prevented and addressed.

Keeping the pace

IT Risk Challenges for Audit Committee


Audit committees have become a crucial element of public company governance.  While their primary focus has typically been on external financial reporting and auditor oversight, they typically also oversee internal risk management and internal audit functions.  With the increasing dependence on complex IT systems to support both financial reporting and business operations, audit committees need a good understanding of a company's IT systems, the major risks these represent to reporting and operations, and how effectively these are being managed.

This session aims to provide audit committee members and internal auditors with some practical insights and tools to provide effective IT governance by the audit committee.  The session will start by putting the audit committee within a company's broader IT governance context, to highlight and help clarify its scope and remit in relation to IT.  Using an illustrative system and typical core business process, the session will then explore how audit committees, by requesting standard IT information and reporting, and posing some key questions in relation to IT, can gain a good understanding of IT, and also assess and challenge the adequacy of related risk management.  Finally, some pointers and tools will be provided in relation to the audit committee’s key IT governance roles around external reporting, internal and external audit/assurance, and broader risk management, especially in environments characterised by significant IT change and complex sourcing arrangements.
