Conference details

Develop your fluency in cybersecurity.

According to CSO, an online resource dedicated to security and risk management, cybercrime damage costs are expected to hit $6 trillion annually by 2021 and cybersecurity spending will exceed $1 trillion from 2017 to 2021.

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.

Cyber-attacks can:

  • Disrupt businesses
  • Result in financial losses
  • Destroy an organization's reputation

What is your role?

You must be able to speak intelligently on the subject both internally and externally and learn the terminology and appropriate questions to ask. It's also important for you to be able to apply the security mindset to your daily work and understand the potential risks and opportunities for your organization or client as they develop or evaluate their cybersecurity risk management program.

This 1-day blended certificate program will cover several cybersecurity topics to help you acquire these skills and gain an understanding of the importance and impact of cybersecurity risks on your organization or firm, including relevant aspects of the AICPA's new cybersecurity risk management reporting framework. This knowledge is indispensable in today's global landscape of persistent and increasing cybercrime. Through a blend of live, interactive training and self-paced learning, the new Cybersecurity Fundamentals for Finance and Accounting Professionals Certificate offers you the opportunity to build a foundation toward becoming a strategic business partner within your organization or with your client. Advance your career with this certificate and digital badge and earn up to 16.5 hours of CPE credit.

Attend the in-person workshop for an interactive learning experience with our cybersecurity expert. Then, continue the learning on your own time with 2 self-paced online modules*.
