Is your organization ready for a cyber-attack? Are you protecting your customer’s precious data? A few million dollars — that’s the average cost of a data breach to a U.S.-based company. It’s no surprise then that cybersecurity is a hot topic and a major challenge in internal auditing today. Cybersecurity is as much of a business risk as it is a security one, making it critical for internal auditors to develop the skill set needed to take on these challenges. In this course, you will develop an understanding of cybersecurity concepts that can be used to facilitate integrated audit efforts within your organization. Developed with and facilitated by leading industry experts, this course will examine preventive, detective, and corrective controls, and how to apply the audit process to a cloud environment. You will also be exposed to the mobile environment and cyber standards, as well as learn how to audit common security solutions.
