ACUA Webinar - How to Audit Incident Response

October 25, 2023 12:00 PM CT
Speaker: Mike Cullen and Morgan Mincy

Cyber risks are an inherent part of any institution and can impact the ability of colleges and universities to conduct operations in support of its mission. These risks require continual identification, assessment, and monitoring. Every institution must manage cyber risks, handle cybersecurity incidents and inevitably deal with a data loss or breach event. Per the 2019 “Cost of a Data Breach Report” study conducted by the Ponemon Institute, the average total cost of a data breach in the education industry is $4.77 million. Could your institution afford this?


The cyber-criminal threats influencing academia come from adversaries that are financially motivated. Auditors must engage before, during, and after cybersecurity incidents and/or breaches to help the business get back up and running and effectively assess what happened, why it happened, and how to prevent it in the future.


After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand how auditors can get a seat at the table and engage with cybersecurity stakeholders
  2. Make the case for performing cybersecurity related audits or reviews
  3. Implement potential approaches for getting involved in post-breach remediation activities.
