Cybersecurity Risk Management Examination: Raising the Bar for Cyber Risk Management Oversight & Reporting
With the proliferation of cybercrime, organizations are under intense pressure from stakeholders to respond to inquiries about the effectiveness of their cybersecurity risk management programs. The pressure is compounded by the reality that there is no single approach for reporting on such programs and related controls. In response, cybersecurity risk management examination guidance related to cyber risk reporting and disclosures has been developed. The new AICPA cybersecurity risk management examination attestation reporting framework is intended to expand cyber risk reporting to address the marketplace need for greater transparency.
During this session, we’ll discuss:

The evolving cyber threat landscape
Regulatory and compliance drivers
AICPA cybersecurity risk management examination reporting
