Cybersecurity threats are escalating, unnerving the boards of directors, managers, investors and other stakeholders of organizations of all sizes —whether public or private. Organizations are under increasing pressure to demonstrate that they are managing threats, and that they have effective processes and controls in place to detect, respond to, mitigate and recover from cybersecurity events.

To meet this need, we have introduced SOC for Cybersecurity, a solution that builds upon the profession's experience in auditing system and organization controls. For clients whose cybersecurity risk management programs are mature, an independent CPA can perform an examination, in which the CPA expresses an opinion on the client's description of its cybersecurity risk management program and an opinion on the effectiveness of the controls within that program.

This webcast will enable you to understand how to perform SOC for Cybersecurity attestation examinations using the AICPA's new cybersecurity risk management reporting framework. Earn this certificate and be among the first to showcase your knowledge about the AICPA's profession-wide approach to cybersecurity.
