Cyber criminals are relentlessly attacking our firms looking for any entry point, foot hold or crack in our defenses. Protecting our information and our client’s information is a critical part of our business. Developing a systematic, repeatable, program to assess security is one aspect of the security program.
We will discuss in detail how to develop a security assessment approach that is repeatable, systematically addresses the environment, adapts to changes in the environment and how to use the results of the assessment activities to feed cyber security audits (internal and external). The approach can be adopted by a firm just starting the process or integrated into an existing program, we will explain options for both and how to start the process.
Upon completion of this session, the learner will:
• Understand how to start your own security assessment program
• Understand how to prepare for information security audits
• Review current trends in cyber security compliance auditing
• Understand how to best leverage previous information security audits to benefit future audits
