Review: Cybersecurity leadership principles (3 CPD points)

The world is experiencing an unprecedented crisis that is causing chaos in the global economy, disrupting supply chains and transforming society. The new reality is accelerating business model transformation at a faster pace than ever before to ensure existential survival in a crisis for which no one was prepared. The COVID-19 pandemic is having a dramatic impact on society and has forced everyone to become heavily reliant on the internet and its digital economy – what would normally have taken years has now occurred in months. The situation has highlighted the intrinsic systemic issues at the juncture of digital infrastructure, economy, geopolitics and privacy that mainly relate to the unprecedented pressure on the digital architecture and supply chain dependencies. If these are not addressed in a holistic manner, the escalating risks may have a domino effect that is likely to impact critical functions and industry ecosystems globally.

World Economic Forum:

This year's Report was published 2020 and shares key information on cybersecurity leadership principles...

External auditors and financial accountants should consider the content in terms of external risk that might affect the future sustainability of their client companies.

Internal auditors should consider these perceptions in the design of the three-year rolling plan and the risk-based audit plan.  We attach the report for your convenience, and it can be downloaded and/or read online.  This is available without cost, but should you like to claim 3 CPD points, you can also complete the online questionnaire (multiple choice).  The online questionnaire relates directly to the content of the WEF report.

The cost for the questionnaire and the corresponding CPD certificate is R90 per person.  This can be procured online, or you can direct an email to us at  Our admin office will then revert back with an official quote and invoice which can be settled via normal EFT processes.
