Cyber-security is at the top of the agenda on many minds, and the Federal government has taken the initiative to meet with top-level, influential organizations to form risk management and insurance guidelines.
Not surprising is the fact that one of the groups is the American Institute of CPAs. AICPA is working with the National Security Council's Critical Infrastructure Assurance Office (CIAO).
The CIAO also is meeting with National Institute of Internal Auditors and the Information Management Systems Audit and Control Association.
The goal is to raise awareness among industry groups while crafting the guidelines. The meetings began in April and will continue in major cities until September.
