January 25, 2010, San Diego, CA – Energy experts estimate that data centers eat up as much as 3% of all electricity generated in the United States. Executives who are intent on both reducing the environmental impact and cost of their data center while finding ways to improve capacity, storage and efficiency, are looking for answers. Corporate, non-profit and government sector executives, who are not necessarily IT professionals, must become familiar with how resource consumption within their data center affects things like electricity usage and carbon emissions. These same executives must find ways to address the short term financial commitment to “greening” their data center while easing the budget pressures that come along with new regulations.
The Green Data Center Conference, hosted by the Global Strategic Management Institute (GSMI), scheduled for February 2-4, 2010 in San Diego will provide industry executives with answers, tools, and information that they need to navigate the seemingly complex task of “greening” their data center-- including everything from improving capacity, lowering energy usage and costs, to understanding the role of the facility and how to create a master plan.

ERM and Information Technology
Originally Published: April 01, 2006
Internal auditors are faced with new challenges as the importance of understanding information technology (IT) and its impact on risk management becomes even more critical. Internal auditors can provide value to businesses if they use their IT knowledge to help an organization implement a successful enterprise risk management (ERM) program. Since Sarbanes-Oxley, ERM's increasingly important role in organizations has forced internal auditors to use a more risk-focused approach as an alternative to the more traditional control-based approach.
The internal environment of an organization includes risk appetite as well as other components such as ethical values. Decisions made about risk tolerance correlate with information technology choices. If an organization choices to use e-commerce, it becomes a global business and should consider all the risks associated with technological changes.
