Documenting an Information Security Program (ISP) is an important step in protecting your organization from cyber threats, but it’s only as good as controls that you’ve actually implemented. Testing your controls to ensure you’re doing what you say you’re doing – and what you're doing is adequate – is the cornerstone to a strong ISP. The objective of a good IT Audit is to find areas of cybersecurity improvement for your organization.

SBS conducts over 500 audits per year across the US (primarily for financial institutions, but also includes businesses of all shapes, sizes, and industries). In this session, we'll share the 10 most frequently recommended IT Audit findings over the past year, and how your organization can leverage these findings to get ahead of your next IT Audit.
