TAMPA, FL, October 14, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ — Integrated Solutions Management, Inc. (ISM) today announced that it will be sponsoring the upcoming ISACA West Florida Chapter CPE class on November 12, 2009 at the Centre Club West Shore in Tampa, FL. The focus of this continuing education event for IT governance and auditing professionals is the Framework for IT SuccessSM, commonly known as Fritz .
Fritz is the first IT framework that identifies, details, and integrates all of the business processes required to run IT as if it were a standalone business. Fritz — consisting of 26 business processes and optimized for both the traditional, physical infrastructure and the emerging virtual infrastructure — represents a best practice combination of numerous industry-recognized frameworks, processes, and architectures, including ITIL v3, COBIT , CMMI , and the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK ).
The day will be divided into two sessions. The first session — IT Management Framework to Improve Organizational Performance and Governance — will introduce the Framework for IT SuccessSM, discuss how to use Fritz to support and improve the IT Audit and Information Security disciplines, and, leveraging the framework, discuss best practices for securing virtualized environments consisting of servers, desktops, data storage, and principles of Cloud Computing.
The second session — Effective Auditing Techniques in a Virtual Environment – will build on the first session and outline the fundamentals of virtualization, detail how virtualization audits differ from physical audits, and explain how Fritz can help establish an effective virtualized audit methodology.
The cost for the ISACA IT Management Framework class is $50 and is open to both members and non-members. ISACA members will receive seven (7) CPE credits by attending this class. To register, please visit http://www.acteva.com/go/westflisaca.
