Impact of COVID-19 on Enterprise Security Controls - ITG223

Overview

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many employees working from home. The transition from working in the office to working at home was abrupt with minimal time to establish a strategy for a secure telecommuting environment. As a result, there is solid evidence of a significant increase in cyberattacks focused on employees working from home in order to penetrate enterprise networks.

During this two-day seminar we will review the short-term and long-term security and control challenges and discuss a strategy to address the key risk areas.

Audit’s charter is to assess risk and provide an independent opinion to Management and Board of Directors. Enterprise information security risks have significantly increased due to COVID-19. Should Audit alter their audit plans to address this new information security risk environment?

Specific control references to globally recognized security & control resources will be included in the discussion of control focus areas.
