    Stan Jamrog MSIA will Speak on Information Assurance!

    in Pets

    Information assurance (IA) is the practice of assuring information and managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information or data and the systems and processes used for those purposes. Information assurance includes protection of the integrity, availability, authenticity, non-repudiation and confidentiality of user datas. It uses physical, technical and administrative controls to accomplish these tasks. While focused predominantly on information in digital form, the full range of IA encompasses not only digital but also analog or physical form. These protections apply to data in transit, both physical and electronic forms as well as data at rest in various types of physical and electronic storage facilities. Information assurance as a field has grown from the practice of information security.

    Assurance of Completion - the process, Predestination, Rom. 8:29

    in Christianity

    We have looked under Assurance of Completion the Promise of Rom. 8:28; now the Process of how that promise is guaranteed, Rom. 8:29.  We have seen the process of foreknowledge and now we come to predestintation. Warning God-centered messages are apt to cause great stress to a man-centered world. But as J. B. Gambell, the first president of the Southern Baptist Convention wrote, "Great revivals have accompanied the heroic preaching of the doctrines of grace: predestination, election, and the whole lofty mountain range of doctrines upon which the Lord sits enthroned, sovereign in grace, as in all things. God always honors the preaching that honors Him."

    Risk Assurance Talk Radio 9/4

    in Business

    Today is the AICPA's webcast where they will hopefully correct the course of SOC reports.  I am looking forward to what the panelists might say to help the SOC reports market correct course.
    In today's show, I discussed some common misunderstandings of basic risk assurance terminology and concepts that lead to a false sense of security.  If we are going to unify the risk assurance industry, we need to establish common ground by agreeing on what standards, assurance, and certifications mean, and which category each of the currently available products in the market fall into.
