  Cybersecurity: Based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework 

Cyber security has become a prevalent issue facing most organizations—one that companies recognize as an enterprise-wide issue requiring thoughtful attention. Investments in controls are necessary to protect organizations from increasingly sophisticated and widely available attack methods. Intentional attacks, breaches and incidents can have damaging consequences.

This free white paper from ISACA, Auditing Cyber Security, highlights the need for these controls implemented as part of an overall framework and strategy. This guide also focuses on the subsequent assurance that is needed through management review, risk assessments and audits of the cyber security controls.

In addition, we created a free infographic that captures at a high level the most important takeaways from our white paper’s deeper examination of auditing cyber security. Be sure to keep this information handy so you can quickly refer to it or share it with others.
