CPD Course: Cybersecurity for finance professionals

Cybersecurity for Finance Professionals

With so much of the business world’s value now generated by and held in digital assets and systems, protecting cyber-systems from attacks and damage is critical for modern businesses. But, as the value arising from digital systems has grown, so have the risks facing those systems!

This course has been designed for finance professionals involved (or with an interest) in risk management and cybersecurity. We’ll provide you with an understanding of the types of risks facing your organisation’s IT systems and the measures that can be put in place to mitigate those risks. Armed with this fundamental knowledge, you will be better able to communicate and coordinate with your organisation’s IT team to combat those cyber risks facing your organisation and its customers.

Provides 21 hours of CPD

  • The different cyber threats your organisation may face so you understand the areas that are vital to focus on in cyber risk management 
  • About techniques for examining your organisation’s systems to identify vulnerabilities, including forensic analysis, malware analysis and penetration testing 
  • Controls for managing cyber risks, including physical, administrative and application controls, network configuration management and more!
  • The importance of cybersecurity objectives, how these can be established and what’s required for these to be accomplished effectively 
  • How your organisation can comply with the information security standard, ISO 27001 – doing so means its cybersecurity risks should be fully covered! 
  • How the AICPA, NIST and AIC Triad frameworks can be used to structure your cybersecurity risk reporting to communicate with relevant stakeholders effectively

This course also offers a range of practice questions that you can use to consolidate your learning and test your understanding of the material covered.
