The CPA's Role in Addressing Cybersecurity Risk

  • CAQ Image

May 24, 2017

On May 24, 2017, the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) released the paper "The CPA's Role in Addressing Cybersecurity Risk" that outlines how the auditing profession can help companies and the capital markets address the growing challenges of cybersecurity.

The paper highlights the strengths of audit firms—including core CPA values of independence, objectivity and skepticism; experience in providing independent evaluations; and multidisciplinary expertise—that audit firms can bring to bear for the benefit of senior management, boards of directors, and other key capital markets stakeholders.

Review the paper on the CAQ's website.
