DGT018 : Cybersecurity Risk – What it means to Auditors

3.50 CPE Hours (Category 3, Others)
Classroom
In Collaboration with:  


Programme Objective
 
Cyber-attacks are on the rise as proprietary or financial data is highly valuable. These ever-growing persistent threats have led various companies to treat cybersecurity as a risk that needs to be actively managed, rather than just a technology issue. With that, Singapore has passed the first dedicated cybersecurity framework which acknowledges the reality that breached infrastructure affects everyone in 2018.
 
Cybersecurity risk is an essential consideration in every financial statements audit. On 1st June 2018, ISCA launched a publication titled ‘Cybersecurity Risk Considerations in a Financial Statements Audit” to provide a guide for auditors on assessing cybersecurity risk in a financial statements audit.
 
The objective of this programme is for auditors to have a basic understanding of the different cyber security risks and best practices. This is to allow the auditors to have the ability to perform high level assessment of their client’s cyber security maturity to handle any security event. This course will also cover how cybersecurity risk considerations can be incorporated as part of risk assessment during audit planning, as well as the appropriate audit responses to the cybersecurity risk identified.
