Topic: Emerging Cybersecurity Controls and Risk Management for Auditors and Shareholders

In recent years, new challenges have emerged for Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) and auditors, among them cybersecurity controls and audit reports for their companies' connected smart product environments. However, much is unclear or overseen regarding the liability of companies, who operate on connected smart products. Companies need to start creating professional control mechanisms for their product cybersecurity risks and reflect this in their audit reports. Regulatory requirements are expanding, and litigation exposure is growing, while at the same time, there are few enforced security standards or codes of practice that would satisfy current or future risk and audit controls. Due to the growing importance of cybersecurity, leading companies have mitigated these risks and implemented best practices.

In this webinar, representatives of itemis AG will showcase the specific challenges deriving from a highly connected and dynamic cybersecurity risk environment and will offer insights into a range of worldwide best practices for Threat Analysis and Risk Assessment (TARA). Join this seminar if you would like to learn more about the best cybersecurity controls and risk management tools as well as learn about best practice cases. This webinar is aimed at, but not limited to, CFOs, Chief Compliance Officers, Chief Risk Officers, Heads of Audit, their departments, as well as auditors at AmCham Germany member companies.
