Politico Highlights AICPA Reporting Framework on Cybersecurity Risk Management

April 27, 2017

Morning Cybersecurity, Politico’s daily briefing on politics and cybersecurity, reported that the AICPA has released a cybersecurity risk management reporting framework that it hopes will help all industries. “Cybersecurity threats are escalating, thereby unnerving boards of directors, managers, investors and customers of businesses of all sizes — whether public or private,” said Susan Coffey, AICPA’s executive vice president for public practice. “While there are many methods, controls and frameworks for developing cybersecurity risk management programs, until now there hasn’t been a common language for companies to communicate about, and report on, these efforts.”
