Nite Owl: Cyber Risk: You Haven’t Heard it Presented Like This Before

Look through the lens of an adversary. If you haven’t previously thought of yourself as a target, everything is about to change. We cover information gathering techniques used to carry out social engineering attacks against an organization and its employees, the cybercrime environment, privacy and notification laws, data breach costs and how the ever evolving cyber insurance policy can be utilized as an investment for your company. Cyber threats are not your traditional risks. A cyber policy is not your typical insurance.

GASB’s Latest and Greatest
In January 2017, GASB 84 — Fiduciary Activities was released to improve guidance regarding the identification of fiduciary activities for accounting and financial reporting and how those activities should be reported. We will dig into GASB 84 as well as the Lease Standard and the other emerging issues the GASB is working on.
