The Institute of Internal Auditors Belgium (IIABEL) and the Belgium Chapter of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), is organizing jointly the Audit Software Watch Day event on 2 June 2022.
What is this event about?
Audit Software Watch Day, hereafter named ASWD event, is an event organized every two years. It will be its ninth edition in the year 2022.
ASWD event brings the software suppliers and service providers in the area of Governance, Risk and Controls Management. This event shows the latest developments in this niche software market segment relevant to our members.
Where is it held?
Park Inn by Radisson Brussels Airport
Address: Grensstraat 3, 1831 Machelen
Confirmed Keynote speakers:
David Martens is Professor of Data Science at the Department of Engineering Management, University of Antwerp, Belgium. He teaches data mining and data science and ethics to master students studying business economics and business engineering. David’s research focuses on explainable AI: explaining why these often-complex AI models are making certain decisions. His work has been published in high-impact journals, and has won several awards for his research, including Best European Paper of the Year in 2017 (CIONET). In his work, David has extensively collaborated with large banks, insurance companies and telco companies, as well as with technology startups. David is author of the book “Data Science Ethics: Concepts, techniques and Cautionary tales”
Data Science Ethics: What is it and why care?
Data science ethics is all about what is right and wrong when conducting data science. Data science has so far mainly been used for positive outcomes for businesses and society. However, just as with any technology, data science has also come with some negative consequences: an increase of privacy invasion, data-driven discrimination against sensitive groups and decision making by complex models without explanations. Data scientists and business managers are not inherently unethical, but at the same time not trained to think this through neither. In this talk I’ll give an overview of the main issues, cautionary tales that illustrate the importance and potential impact of data science ethics, including tales of discrimination in recruitment, re-identification of persons based on movie viewing and location data, and face recognition, and finally some exciting new technology to deal with these issues.
John Wallhoff (CISA, CISM, CISSP), immediate past president ISACA Sweden Chapter and CTO at B4 Investigate. With more than 20 years of practical experience in analytics, he has gained an insight into what data can do to an organization. Still he gets fascinated when having data at his fingertips and when exploring the future of cognitive technology.
Creating algorithms for AI-Analytics
The algorithm is the secret key for AI-Analytics, that enable you to explore data to understand behavior, control weaknesses and opportunities within an organization. The value of an algorithm is a reduction of reports you have to review when you instead are equipped with a digital sense and feel that will assist you with the decision where you should focus on details. Equally important is the interface between Analytics/AI and the manual interpretation of the algorithms you have designed, a step forward in the creation of cognitive technology.
In this session we will follow a case of creating algorithms to detect fraud based upon the “follow the money principle”. It will involve an approach from Think like a thief, fraud and risk analysis, analytics design. The approach can also be applied for Audit Analytics.
