IT security requires continuous improvement, and organizations must stay vigilant, and learn & adapt over time. AAFCPAs’ IT security pros James Jumes provides an overview of threats of significant concern in 2017, and highlight critical security controls that assist in mitigating the most prevalent vulnerabilities that often result in many of today’s cybersecurity intrusions and incidents.

This podcast will:

  1. Discuss how the revolutionary Internet of Things (IoT) may be highly disruptive to business. IoT devices are “always on” which is enabling new types of attacks that have not been seen in the past, posing significant security concerns for your organization, employees and constituents.
  2. Feature best practice recommendations from IT assurance, security and governance professionals for mitigating cybersecurity risks.
