Bloomberg Law Quotes AICPA's Joel White in Cyber Risk Management Story

November 7, 2018

A November 7 Bloomberg Law article by Joyce Cutler reports about how accountants are on the front line for cyberrisk management. The article says accountants’ due diligence skills are essential as companies have much to lose from fraudsters holding data hostage and siphoning off money or having deals collapse from the discovery of a long-term, persistent intrusion. Joel White, senior director of internal audit, risk and compliance for the AICPA stated, “Accountants already provide companies with independent opinion on a company’s financials. The next evolution is providing those assurances around an organization’s cybersecurity status.”
