4.8 Understanding the Hacker: How Audit is Easier When Understanding Cyber Risk & Vulnerabilities
This presentation falls in line with IT Audit and Cyber Security as a central issue to the problems posed by the modern internet and a vast array of existing threats. While we are frequently conditioned to fear governments and hackers, the greater danger often comes from our own organizations lacking cohesion. This means miscommunication and misunderstanding, often over representing or underrepresenting risks and challenges, often due to oversight, lack of budget, lack of patience, or all of the above. Understanding the aspects of how secure systems operate is fundamental to making audit decisions and protecting clients.
