Learning Objectives

  • Articulate the nature and types of cybersecurity advisory services that can be performed.
  • Identify key considerations of each of those advisory services.
  • Recognize what one would need to effectively perform advisory services.

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.

Cybersecurity yields potential business opportunities for a firm to better serve its clients. As a trusted business advisor, firm practitioners can provide advisory services that help companies spot cybersecurity weaknesses, identify potential risks and offer advice on how to safeguard information and systems.

During this two-day webcast, learn how you can help your clients navigate threats by becoming a trusted business advisor for their organization's cybersecurity risk management programs. The event covers:

Day One

  • Cybersecurity Risk Management Program Overview
  • Cybersecurity Advisory Service Opportunities
  • Cybersecurity Examination Services Versus Advisory Services
  • Cybersecurity Frameworks

Day Two

  • Drivers for Cybersecurity Advisory Needs
  • Gap Analysis and Risk Assessment
  • Common Cybersecurity Advisory Services

Upon completing the webcast, you will be awarded with a certificate in the form of a digital badge to be proudly displayed anywhere on the internet—a personal blog, a social network like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Mozilla Open Badges, a biographical page on a company website or an online resume.

Pop-up blockers are software programs that stop windows from opening automatically. These windows often feature advertisements that can be an annoyance while browsing the internet.

While this is normally a desired result, some software utilizes the additional windows to deliver key functionality. Our webcasts utilize pop-ups to automatically open your presentation, attendance checks and slides in a new window. If your pop-up blockers are enabled, it will prevent you from being able to view the event and the attendance checks automatically.

It is very common to have multiple pop-up blockers operating at the same time; some you may not be aware of. You can locate most pop-up blockers in either the system tray (lower right hand corner of your screen but the clock) or as a toolbar (in IE and Firefox click on "View" then "Toolbars" to activate or deactivate toolbars).

Common toolbars such as Google and Yahoo Companion have built in pop-up blockers that you may need to disable. Also, if you are running personal firewall software such as Norton's Internet Security or Zonealarm, they will also block pop-ups.

If you are running personal firewall software and cannot view the event, please contact your internal IT department or the manufacturer of your firewall software for assistance in disabling pop-up blocking.

Also, if you are using a corporate network, please be aware of your IT policies regarding streaming audio and video. It is very common for businesses to block access to certain web sites containing unrelated content or streaming audio and video. Your IT department may need to make an exception in the system allowing you to view the broadcast.


If you opted for the CPE version of the webcast, then: YES. After the webcast is completed and you have selected all of the qualifying attendance checks, you will have the ability to print/download your CPE certificate. There are a number of ways to access your certificate.

  • At the end of the event, while still logged in, you can click the CPE icon at the bottom of the event player, which will launch a pop-up window containing your certificate.
  • If you do not click the CPE icon while in the presentation, you will have subsequent opportunities to download and print it. A post event email will be sent to the email address the event was registered under with a direct link to your certificate, as well as, access to the archive where you can again click the CPE icon.
  • If you have an AICPA/CPA.com store ID, you will also be able to access your certificate from your My Accounts section. If you opted for the NO CPE version of the webcast, then you will not be able to receive a certificate of completion.

As a reminder CPE credit cannot be given for watching the archived version of the webcast due to NASBA guidelines.


Yes. All registrants of our webcasts get access to the archive after the event is over. The archive is typically available 24 hours after the event ends and online for 3 months. The same link you receive for accessing the live event can be used for accessing the archive. CPE credit will only be given if you attend the original, live webcast. Credit cannot be given for watching the archive version of any AICPA webcast, due to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) guidelines issued for CPE.

    • Are you running any anti-virus software?
      • If yes, what brand/version?
    • Are you running any pop-up blockers or toolbars?

You may substitute your registration with another webcast of equal or lesser value if the request is received up to a day prior to the webcast. Refunds, less 50 percent administrative fee, will be issued if cancellation requests are received up to a day prior to webcast.

Group Access

When a multi-seat group purchase is made, participants will all sit in one room and watch the course together.

After the group purchase is made, the purchaser will receive an email which provides them a direct link to the course. They should use this direct link to access the course.

For those participants sitting together as a group, using a single computer, the person who makes the PURCHASE must be the person logged into the event in order for everyone to receive CPE credit. As the attendance checks are presented on the screen the person logged in must answer them. If all the required checks have been met at the end of the event, the person logged in will click the CPE icon and a form will be provided, so that they can enter each participant who was sitting in the room with them. Once the form is fill out with all the users names/email addresses, then all certificates will be generated for saving/printing.

So what does this mean for my CPE certificate?

If you attended in a group, then the person who is logged in is responsible for responding to the attendance checks. After the event is over and the person logged in selects the CPE icon, they will be required to fill in the name, email and STORE ID of each person sitting in the room. This is why those individuals must have previously registered. Without a valid store ID, the attendee will NOT be able to access their CPE certificate from the MY ACCOUNT option after the event.
