The Cybersecurity Audit Certificate Program provides audit/assurance professionals with the knowledge needed to excel in cybersecurity audits. It provides security professionals with an understanding of the audit process, and IT risk professionals with an understanding of cyber-related risk and mitigating controls.
“Information security has become critical to understanding an enterprise, its risk and its processes,” said Caitlin McGaw, president of Candor McGaw Inc., an executive search provider to Fortune 500 companies in the IT audit and GRC space. “To add increased value now, IT audit and GRC professionals have to build solid information security skills. This is the golden ticket to short-term success and long-term career sustainability.”
