Course Description

The following topics will be covered during this event:

1. Cyber Security

Cyber risks are the risk of financial loss, or reputational damage, to an organization as a result of an information technology (IT) failure. 20 years ago cyber breaches were unknown; for example in 1997 only 1.7% of the populace used the internet. Today cyber threats are one of, if not the, most important concerns for many organizations.

This course is designed for accountants, auditors and other stakeholders who have responsibility for managing cyber risks. Although there are technological aspects of cyber security that are beyond the scope of this course the course is designed so that participants can identify cyber risks and respond appropriately.

This course will examine the following topics:

  • Define cyber risks, both internal and external to an organization, and examine why these risk are so difficult to control.
  • Identify the high risk access points used to gain unauthorized access to IT systems.
  • Understand the importance of introducing an IT/ cyber methodology and explore the various options.
  • Review preventive and detective controls in the cyber sphere & examine alternatives such as outsourcing to a third party.
  • Examine the legislative requirements that organizations must comply with to mitigate cyber threats. Discuss the Canadian Securities Administrators’ requirements for disclosing cyber risks.
  • Outline how to implement an IT/ cyber risk and control matrix in your organization and amend for your unique circumstances.
