Update from GAO on the new Cybersecurity Audit Methodology Manual
Presented by Jennifer Franks, United States Government Accountability Office (GAO)

GAO has designated information security as a government-wide high-risk area since 1997. The Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 requires federal agencies to apply National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) security standards in implementing their information security programs. Currently, Federal Information Systems Control Audit Manual (FISCAM) serves as GAO's methodology for performing audits to determine the adequacy of information security for federal systems. Since FISCAM was last revised in 2009, NIST has issued new guidelines to reflect advances in cybersecurity in areas such as security risk management and cloud computing. Come learn how GAO will be updating FISCAM for financial audits, and the creation of a new cybersecurity audit methodology manual for our cybersecurity audits. This new cybersecurity methodology will provide relevant and current guidance to the audit community that reflects changes that have occurred in IT-related auditing requirements, standards, and guidance.
