How Internal Audit Can Respond to Evolving Cyber Risks
About this webinar
With the exponential growth for data and sensitive information across different platforms and environments such as cloud, external vendors, and internally developed systems, data protection and security can be a daunting activity if the organization attempts to protect everything. It is important to drive the data protection starting with its criticality and risk.
IIA has observed a spike in the attacks using COVID-19 as bait to mislead employees and customers. This results in more infected personal devices, privacy and cyber breaches. Not only are businesses being targeted, end-users who download COVID-19 related applications are also being tricked into downloading ransomware disguised as legitimate applications. Internal Audit is a critical line of defence in safeguarding organizations against privacy and cybersecurity risks.
Please join IIA Toronto to learn how Internal Audit can help respond to the disrupting cyber risks posed by the pandemic and beyond as organizations continue to navigate an uncertain and ever-changing risk landscape. During this session, IIA will discuss:
- Recent trends in Cybersecurity due to COVID-19;
- Top drivers impacting Cyber risk posture;
- Internal Audit’s role in assessing cybersecurity programs; and
- Discuss specific audits Internal Audit can execute to address cybersecurity risks.
