Auditing Security Monitoring (Watching the Watchers)

Course Description

Print-friendly Course Description and Outline

​The pace and damage of cyber breaches continues to escalate with no sign of slowing down. As a consequence, regulators and lawmakers have finally started to move toward prescriptive, detailed security regulations that go beyond ITGC and best practice guidance. A specific discipline that is now being highlighted within these new compliance requirements is enterprise-wide security monitoring, which consists of far more than simple anti-virus and intrusion detection.

Organizations are expected to have the capability to identify and respond to complex cyber attacks, as well as actions of malicious internal employees. This course will cover concepts that internal auditors must understand to perform a successful review of their organization’s true monitoring capabilities.
