Focus and Features

$5.4 million — 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.

This course is designed for internal auditors involved in IT audits or those involved in audit activities that require an understanding of how to manage  the impact of cybersecurity events on business risks.
