Featuring 999 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Cybersecurity Audit improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:
- Does the full board or committee assigned oversight over cybersecurity periodically use cyber attack scenarios and simulations to stress test cybersecurity oversight practices?
- Have you performed a mock regulatory audit to prepare for your upcoming regulatory audit and addressed any non compliance, gaps or blind spots before the audit?
- Has the cybersecurity risk been reduced as far as possible or to a level that is outweighed by the benefits of the component/function that introduced the risk?
- Are appropriate cybersecurity controls in place to ensure the applicable confidentiality, integrity and availability of information collected by the device?
- Does your organizations audit trail program require protective controls on log files to prevent unauthorized modification and/or deletion of logged events?
- Has cybersecurity been considered across the total product lifecycle of the device, and in consideration of the different expected user environments?
- Are your current internal audit resources and expertise sufficient given the magnitude of IT risk and the speed with which it can change and strike?
- Are cybersecurity policies and procedures in place, and do employees and contractors receive cybersecurity awareness training on a periodic basis?
- Are feedback mechanisms operating to give senior management and the board insight into the status of your organizations cybersecurity programs?
- Will the capability be implemented in a distributed or centralized manner, and how would cybersecurity and auditing be handled in either case?
