Cyber security, ERM and Emerging Risks, Ethics & Compliance Program audits to be discussed at NeuGroup Internal Auditors’ Peer Group Meeting. Members will also get a tour of Microsoft’s Digital Crimes Unit.
The Internal Auditors’ Peer Group is gearing up for its second-half meeting of 2018. Members will delve into a wide range of topics, including now familiar topics including cyber security, ERM and emerging risks.
Here is a brief synopsis of some of what will be discussed and questions that will be addressed.
Cybersecurity. A discussion of current maturities of cybersecurity programs at member companies, including whether Securities and Exchange Commission guidance from February 2018 has been followed. Background: in February, the SEC voted unanimously to approve a statement and interpretive guidance to assist public companies in preparing disclosures about cybersecurity risks and incidents.
Digital Crimes Unit Tour. Microsoft’s DCU is dedicated to fighting global malware, reducing digital risk and protecting vulnerable populations. The tour will show how the DCU combines big data analytics, cutting-edge forensics and novel legal strategies to protect data, help consumers gain control of personal information, and help keep seniors and children safe online. The DCU is made up of an international team of attorneys, investigators, data scientists, engineers, analysts and business professionals based in 30 countries, all working together to transform the ongoing fight against digital crime.
ERM and Emerging Risks. How are companies identifying emerging risks before they happen? Many boards of directors are asking IA and ERM to identify the unknown risks. What are the sources?
Audit Department Road Maps. IA is always looking to improve how they engage with stakeholders. This helps IA reach its organizational objectives as well as quality audit outcomes. Mapping out a step-by-step process is a good exercise to identify activities in each phase of an audit and can create new insights for stakeholders, management and internal auditors alike.
