Heads of Internal Audit Forum - Cyber Security & Technology Resilience
31 January 2019
This forum will focus on cyber security and technology resilience, which are internal audit hot topics for most organisations.
Internal audit has a critical role in helping organisations with the continued battle of managing cyber threats. This role includes providing an independent assessment of existing and required controls, as well as assisting the board and audit and risk committees to understand and address the diverse range of cyber risks. Many organisations are still struggling with the basics in this area, resulting in the UK government creating the Cyber Essentials scheme.
In an environment that is heavily reliant on technology, resilience continues to be the main concern of organisations, attracting an increased focus from regulators. Although one-off reviews of disaster recovery plans may still be required, internal audit is expected to play a bigger role in assessing the end-to-end operational resilience of organisations. This includes not only what to do in case of a disaster, but also the overall resilience of the organisation that would allow it to avoid the disaster.
During the forum, we will explore and discuss the key risks organisations face in the above areas and the controls that are being put in place to mitigate such risks.
Mazars Director, Cyber Security
We will also be joined by a team of panellists from three leading organisations.

Every organisation is unique – the approach and focus of its internal audit function should be tailored accordingly. We appreciate that a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach does not work in reality.

In today’s increasingly sophisticated and complex technological environment, new security challenges are constantly arising, making it harder for businesses to protect valuable intellectual property and business information in digital form against theft, damage and misuse.
Businesses face increasing complex regulatory requirements and a continuously evolving technological landscape. To thrive they must reply upon the controlled operation of information technology to be compliant, function securely and minimise IT related risks.
