IIA Opens Public Comment Survey for Cybersecurity Topical Requirement

NewsRelease The IIA Apr 02, 2024

The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) is pleased to invite internal audit leaders and stakeholders to participate in the global Topical Requirements public comment survey on the draft pilot Cybersecurity Topical Requirement. Through the survey, the internal audit community will have the opportunity to provide valuable feedback that will help shape the structure of the Topical Requirement and the specific criteria provided on the topic of cybersecurity.

Topical Requirements are one of the three key elements of the International Professional Practices Framework® (IPPF), alongside the Global Internal Audit Standards™ and Global Guidance. The requirements are designed to help internal auditors address pervasive and evolving risks and promote consistency and reliability of internal audits of identified topics. The Cybersecurity Topical Requirement provides a comprehensive approach to assessing the design and implementation of cybersecurity governance, risk management and control processes, and is applicable to those who are specifically auditing this area.

Participants are invited to review the draft Cybersecurity Topical Requirement and submit their feedback between April 3 – July 3, 2024 via the survey.
