Learning Objectives
  • Articulate the nature and types of cybersecurity advisory services that can be performed.
  • Identify key considerations of each of those advisory services.
  • Recognize what one would need to effectively perform advisory services.

Cybersecurity threats are escalating, unnerving the boards of directors, managers, investors and other stakeholders of organizations of all sizes—whether public or private. Organizations are under increasing 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.

Cybersecurity yields potential business opportunities for a firm to better serve its clients. As a trusted business advisor, firm practitioners can provide advisory services that help companies spot cybersecurity weaknesses, identify potential risks and offer advice on how to safeguard information and systems.

During this two-day webcast, learn how you can help your clients navigate threats by becoming a trusted business advisor for their organization's cybersecurity risk management programs. The event covers:
