Digital transformation has become a critical catalyst for growth, innovation, and disruption across multiple industries around the world. The rapid adoption of new and emerging digital technologies to gain market leadership has become the number one obsession for Boards and senior management globally, as organisations begin to understand the almost unlimited opportunities that digital transformation presents. However, this has simultaneously led to increasing multi-dimensional challenges in cybersecurity, and the inadequate securitisation of digitised assets against external threats.
As the sophistication of cyber attacks continue to evolve, it is important for organisations to proactively identify, monitor, manage and mitigate their emerging and existing cybersecurity risks. This is where Internal audit can play a vital role in helping the Audit Committee and Board understand and prioritise the diverse risks presented by rapid digital transformation. Familiarity with not only the organisation’s cyber risk profile, but the internal capabilities within the organisation to mitigate and manage these risks makes internal audit increasingly important in today’s digital world.
This session will highlight common cyber challenges in digital transformation, key lessons learnt, paths to realising cyber resilience, and present a cybersecurity framework for the effective management of cybersecurity programmes within the organisation.
