Cyber Risk Assessment – Detect Threats Part One

Field: Auditing | Delivery Method: Self Study | CPE Hours: 1.5

This is a segment in our ongoing series on cyber risks. In this session we begin to delve into the detection phase of a cyber risk assessment.

Once assets are identified, the NIST framework suggests organizations then protect those assets. The next element is to detect threats against those assets. Some may correlate this to the “Monitoring” phase of the COSO internal control framework. But there is much more involved in detection than simple monitoring.

In this segment we will discuss important elements to consider when determining how to stay abreast of impending threats and what organizations should do to detect those threats. We will also discuss the types of IT assets you should consider when establishing your detection processes. Our discussion on the detect phase will be divided into two separate courses. This is course one.
