"Why Cyber Security?" and the Changing Role of Internal Auditors | 29 November 2017

Invitation to a seminar on cyber security and the role of Internal Auditors | 29 November 2017 – Downtown Rotana Hotel, Manama

29 November 2017, 10:15AM - 1:30PM, AST

As the information security landscape continues to evolve, and cyber-attacks become increasingly sophisticated and more frequent, cyber security has significantly risen higher up on the agenda of Boards across the globe.

Investors, governments and regulators are increasingly challenging Board members to actively demonstrate diligence in this area. Regulators expect personal information to be protected and systems to be resilient to both accidents and deliberate attacks.

In light of ongoing developments globally to manage cyber risk, KPMG in Bahrain is pleased to invite you to participate in a seminar on Cyber Security and the Changing Role of Internal Auditors. This seminar aims to help raise awareness and share knowledge on Cyber Security and the specific role that Internal Auditors can play as the third line of defense against cyber threats, now and in the future.
