Cybersecurity remains a top risk for organizations as cyber threats continue to evolve and the threat landscape grows. As a result, organizations are constantly evaluating how to strike the right balance of innovation which is centered around or driven by technology led transformation against the cyber threats that accompany these emerging technologies. Risk and internal audit functions are also facing increased pressure by business teams, boards, and other relevant stakeholders including regulators, to provide risk advisory services and assurance over the cybersecurity posture of an organization (e.g., increased use of cloud-based technologies, Artificial Intelligence, and third-party business relationships). In this session, RSM will discuss a range of newer cyber security threats that these technology transformations have introduced. Our speakers will also discuss how leading internal audit functions are preparing for and responding to these in the face of ever growing asks, while battling the shift to digital transformation for IA functions in the face of expanding business demands.
