The state of cyber-threats and the measures against them
Cybersecurity threats are escalating, unnerving the boards of directors, managers, investors and other stakeholders of organizations of all sizes – whether public or private.
The result? Your clients are under pressure to demonstrate that they are managing threats. And that they have effective processes and controls in place to detect, respond to, mitigate and recover from cybersecurity events.

For clients whose cybersecurity risk management programs are mature, an independent CPA can perform an examination and express an expert opinion:
- Is the program accurately described?
- Are the controls effective?
