Webcast - IT Audit’s Perspectives on the Top Technology Risks for 2021

Cybersecurity, privacy, data and resilience dominate the top technology challenges for organisations, according to ISACA/Protiviti global survey of IT audit leaders and professionals.

In September/October 2020, ISACA and Protiviti conducted a global survey of more than 7,400 IT audit and risk leaders and professionals to obtain their perspectives on the top technology risks their organisations will face in 2021. We also addressed the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic as well as ongoing digital transformation efforts.

Following this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Understand the high velocity issues surrounding security, privacy and resilient technologies.
  • Articulate why organisations with a higher level of digital maturity are far more likely to perform continuous audit risk assessments.
  • Outline how COVID-19 and digital transformation are driving more frequent technology risk assessments.
