AICPA Initiative Info Organizations are under increasing pressure to demonstrate that they are managing cybersecurity threats, and that they have effective processes and controls in place to detect, respond to, mitigate and recover from breaches and other security events.

To address this market need, the AICPA has developed a cybersecurity risk management reporting framework that assists organizations as they communicate relevant and useful information about the effectiveness of their cybersecurity risk management programs. The framework is a key component of a new??System and Organization Controls??(SOC) for Cybersecurity engagement, through which a CPA reports on an organizations’ enterprise-wide cybersecurity risk management program.?? This information can help senior management, boards of directors, analysts, investors and business partners gain a better understanding of organizations’ efforts.
