Will 2015 be a repeat of 2014 and become the year of the data breach? Organizations are experiencing a troubling number of cybersecurity challenges and breakdowns. Internal auditors play a vital role in securing the organization by helping companies ensure that cybersecurity is incorporated into common business processes.

- The list of internal audit priorities continues to grow
- Technology-enabled auditing is on the rise
- More internal audit functions are focused on marketing and collaboration
