Vendor Management from a Vendor’s Perspective: Understanding SOC for Cybersecurity

In today’s business environment, most companies are realistically asking “when,” not “if” a data breach or other cyber event will occur. As a response, the AICPA recently has created a framework to help businesses demonstrate they have effective risk management practices in place as it relates to cybersecurity – which has been named “System and Organization Controls (SOC)” for Cybersecurity.

The SOC for Cybersecurity provides transparency into how companies manage cybersecurity risks and how effective their programs are in doing so. By following the guidelines set forth by the AICPA and having a third party examine your risk management program, stakeholders will have more confidence that your cybersecurity program is properly designed – though, knowing where to begin can be overwhelming!

During this webinar, we will discuss the importance of a solid cyber risk management program as well as specific areas to focus on when it comes to ensuring you remain compliant with AICPA guidelines:

  • Background – Why SOC for Cybersecurity
  • Contrast between SOC 2 and SOC for Cybersecurity
  • Elements of a Cybersecurity Risk Management Program
  • Key Cybersecurity Risk Management Components
  • Practical Considerations
  • And more !

Preparing for a wide spectrum of cyber scenarios is crucial to ensuring that your risk management programs are effective and completing a SOC for Cybersecurity is one of the best ways to demonstrate to your stakeholders that you are, indeed, prepared.
