As the information security landscape continues to evolve, and cyber-attacks become increasingly sophisticated, Cyber Security has risen higher up on the agenda of Boards across the globe. Given the rapid changes and increase in complexities in marketplace, companies must grapple with emerging challenges seemingly every day: cyber threats, emerging and potentially disruptive technologies, business performance risk and more.

KPMG in Bahrain, is hosting an educational seminar to shed light on the role of Internal Audit in preventing and addressing cyber-threats. The seminar, titled “Why cyber security and the changing role of internal auditors"”, will take place on Wednesday, 29 November 2017, at the Downtown Rotana Hotel.

Participants will benefit from the opportunity to learn from KPMG’s experts about the latest developments and trends within the spectrum of cyber security and gain valuable insight on how organizations can take control of cyber risks in a proactive and preventative manner.

Jeyapriya Partiban, Partner and Head of Risk Consulting at KPMG in Bahrain commented on the event: “In a recent survey carried out by KPMG globally and across industry sectors in 2017, Cybersecurity has emerged as the No.1 consideration for Internal Audit functions to focus on so it can effectively add value across the organization and maximize its impact on the company. Emerging technologies and customer behavior dynamics are changing how organizations worldwide deliver services/products to enhance customer experience and stay competitive. At the same time, cyber-attacks have become increasingly sophisticated and security has become significantly higher up on the agenda of boards world-wide. I believe this seminar provides an ideal platform for audit heads and managers from all economic sectors in Bahrain to find out more about this important topic and help defend their organizations from cyber threat”.

Sony Anthony, Partner and Head of Information Technology at KPMG in India, will be the guest speaker. During the event he will share his 18 years of experience in network data center architecture design and strategy services, system solutions and IT programs management and implementation.
