Cybersecurity is one of the biggest internal control areas that need executive attention.

You just received an urgent call from the CEO. An e-mail was received demanding $10M Bitcoin to be paid as ransom to unencrypt the company's data.

"Oh no! Maybe if we audited the organization's Cybersecurity program and controls before this happened, we might not be in this mess!"

Sound familiar? Hundreds of Security, Compliance and Audit professionals have faced this dilemma.

As we know, cybersecurity breaches occur throughout the world on a daily basis, and many are unreported. ALL organizations are vulnerable...including our most "secure" government agencies, financial institutions and public utility companies. A comprehensive cybersecurity program is an absolutely essential component of a system of internal control.

How can you assess its effectiveness? Have you conducted an audit? What are the common and not-so-common deficiencies? How can we improve our "security resiliency"?

Please join us for this valuable in-person, interactive training, and allow our expert instructors to carefully guide you as to how to assess the controls and processes of your organization's cybersecurity program. We will transfer our knowledge of this important topic to you in an educational, enjoyable manner. We will provide you with the information to enhance the effectiveness of your cybersecurity program.
