Event Details

CPE Credit Event

Very few internal audit professionals would argue that the role of internal audit is changing, and change can be considered the hallmark of a profession that is maintaining and enhancing its relevance.

Just as the profession has evolved and adapted to IT’s growing importance, internal audit needs to adapt again to address critical cybersecurity risks. Working with the Institute of Internal Auditors’ Audit Executive Center, in collaboration with the Internal Audit Foundation, Crowe conducted a survey of U.S. internal audit and cybersecurity professionals to ask about the role of internal audit as relates to their organizations’ cybersecurity strategies and initiatives. The responses suggest some conclusions about the potential future role of internal audit in dealing with cybersecurity issues.

This webinar, presented by Lucas Morris and Chris Wilkinson, a principal at Crowe, will focus on the speed at which the role of the internal auditor is changing in the area of cybersecurity.

After participating in this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Distinguish the future needs of validating the effectiveness of cybersecurity risk management
  • Determine the opportunities for improving the level of collaboration and support among the various groups
  • Identify the evolving responsibilities of internal audit in addressing cybersecurity issues
