Course Description

Cybersecurity is at the forefront for most organizations today, with boards increasingly interested in understanding the enterprise’s risk and related controls. A strong cybersecurity audit program with qualified, capable auditors and controls implemented as part of an overall strategy is essential. During this course, we will explore concepts related to evaluating the risk and auditing the cybersecurity controls for an organization.
