Cyber assurance: why we all need to be IT auditors

10 March | Bournemouth

Following the success of last year’s inaugural seminar, we’re back in Bournemouth exploring the risks associated with cyber security. 

The world of cyber, information risk, artificial intelligence, data analytics and security presents both threats and opportunities for organisations. This event will be of value to those who want to know more about these critical subjects and are keen to improve the assurance they provide their stakeholders.

The informative sessions will cater to relative beginners and those with more experience of these subjects so you can learn how to provide meaningful, effective and insightful assurance over these topical areas.

What will I learn?

  • Learn about the challenges faced by chief information security officers, and how you can work effectively with these key stakeholders
  • Find out more about new and emerging cyber security risks and what organisations are doing to manage them
  • Gain practical insight into how internal auditors can employ practical data analytics to enhance the depth of their fieldwork and the value of their reporting
  • Network with your peers across private, public and third party sectors
