It’s not just the high cost to an organization in the event of a breach, but the inevitability of an attack that makes cybersecurity critical. With the increasing number of cyberthreats, it is becoming critical for the audit plan in every organization to include cybersecurity. As a result, auditors are increasingly being required to audit cybersecurity processes, policies and tools to provide assurance that their enterprise has appropriate controls in place. Vulnerabilities in cybersecurity can pose serious risks to the entire organization—making the need for IT auditors well-versed in cybersecurity audit greater than ever.
ISACA’s new Cybersecurity Audit Certificate Program provides audit/assurance professionals with the knowledge needed to excel in cybersecurity audits. It provides security professionals with an understanding of the audit process, and IT risk professionals with an understanding of cyber-related risk and mitigating controls.
