Topic: Performance Audit – the job you’ve always wanted but never knew existed until now!
Presenters: Mike Scott, Assistant Auditor-General, and Gary Emery, Performance Manager, OAG
What value does performance audit add? Mike and Gary will seek to shed some light on this important question talking about their experiences of where performance audits have added value and some of the risks that need to be managed to ensure that performance audits do add value – in an article in the Australian Accounting Review recently these risks were called ‘The Seven Deadly Sins of Performance Auditing’. Many of these risk are also relevant to financial and other forms of auditing.
Mike joined the Office of the Auditor-General in December 2004 and has led the OAG’sPerformance Audit Group since December 2007. The Group’s goal is to influence majorimprovements to public services and its remit covers auditing the performance of all publicentities.

Influences on Risk Management
The subject of risk management has received a lot of attention over the past few years and most of us have developed a broad understanding (if not a good working knowledge) of common risk management practices. However, the connection between the psychology of risk taking (why some people will take chances and others won't) and the more ‘operational’ areas of risk management remains largely overlooked.
In spite of having well-defined processes, different people looking at the same information can reach quite different conclusions. Moreover, people don’t always pursue the most logical decision when faced with uncertainty and risk – a whole range of factors come into play which affect how risks are perceived and approached.
This session will examine some of the debate and discussion about the nature of risk, judgement and decision making, and will explore how this influences risk management at an organisational level. In particular, the way in which perceptions and attitudes of risk can provoke certain behaviours (and why initiatives to manage risk sometimes have a reverse effect) will be discussed.

ISACA Session (12.00-12.50)
One CPD Hour Topic: "ITIL vs COBIT: showdown of the frameworks"
There is no reason other than history why ITIL is the "default" choice as an IT framework. There are better ones around. In my consulting practice I use COBIT as my framework, and flesh it out with ITIL and other bodies of knowledge when necessary. I use COBIT to frame assessment, current state analysis, reviews, improvement planning, strategy, roles, and so on. It's better.

IIANZ Session (13.10 – 14.00)
One CPD Hour Topic: “A Cloudy Issue”
Cloud services can provide an innovative, cost efficient way to bring utility or value added services to business and the community. But the jury may be out in terms of whether these perceived benefits are valid and strategically viable or merely another fad that will wear out its welcome…. So what are some of the factors that need to considered to realise the benefits of cloud?
Join us for a session where we share our point of view on:
The nature of cloud services
The management and governance requirements
The need for transformation
The role of Government in making cloud work
The need for being clear about the benefits that must be derived
We will also take a sneak peek at some potential cloud related business continuity/disruption scenarios for NZ Inc and explore possible mitigations.
