Internal Audit’s Role in Cybersecurity

Almost all companies, whether public or private need to face the reality that cyber security is becoming an ever more increased threat which must be mitigated.  Some companies may have Internal Audit departments that are considering this risk while others may have third party partners that are assisting with their internal monitoring.   Regardless which position you are in, new regulations and threats are emerging daily. 

DLA has been advising companies as an outsourced internal audit firm since before the introduction of the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) Cyber Security framework.  We specialize in assisting companies to build out their control environments to reduce their risk profiles.  As such, we have experience when it comes to integrating cyber security into internal control frameworks.

We discuss key areas such as:

  • Challenges in today’s environment when considering cyber security
  • Various frameworks which one may need to consider
  • How IA must work closely with IT when considering cyber security
  • And lastly, how to facilitate a risk-based audit approach to cyber security
