Auditing the Cybersecurity Program Certificate

Modality Type: Online

Since 2018, publicly traded companies have been required by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to disclose obligations relating to cybersecurity risks and cyber incidents. This disclosure is presented within Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. Each registrant must outline known cybersecurity risks, as well as disclose any cybersecurity incidents that occurred during the fiscal year. This disclosure can include the costs of ongoing cybersecurity activities, remediation efforts, intellectual property loss, regulatory investigations, and litigation actions. In 2022, the SEC decided to move forward with a proposal to further strengthen disclosure requirements. It is in the strategic interest of both public and private organizations to audit the cybersecurity program.

Internal audit should play a key role in supporting the organization in reducing cyber risk. Cybersecurity program auditing can serve as the critical barrier between a potential cyber-attack and the organization. Due to the cost, risk, and reputational damage that can result from a cyber incident or data breach, every organization needs a cyber strategy and response plan.

This certificate program is designed to ensure the internal audit community possesses the fundamental competencies to effectively assess an organizations cybersecurity governance and management practices, including their cybersecurity program capabilities.

Upon completion of the program, participants are eligible to sit for the assessment in order to earn this certificate.
