CPE Credit: 8 Hours

Price: $695.00

NASBA Field of Study: Accounting

 

Overview

Today, malicious cyber attacks cost American organizations between $300 billion and $1 trillion a year! Advanced attackers targeted five out of six large companies last year, an increase of 40% over the previous year. Even worse, 60% of all targeted attacks struck small- and medium-sized
organizations…so no organization of any size is safe.

Cyber attacks can have not only a devastating impact on a company’s reputation and financial health, but also wide-ranging implications on a company’s accounting and financial reporting, including SOX audits and SEC filings.

In this highly targeted conference, a team of America’s leading experts from a variety of disciplines will show you the best ways to handle all the financial implications of cybersecurity. They will also show you what financial professionals are required to do to help protect their organizations from cyber attacks and what steps you need to take if you suffer a cybersecurity breach.

   on the SOX 404 certification
