2017 Cyber Security Conference Bundle

OL127-17  |  On Demand  |  Update  |  Self-Study


Today, malicious cyberattacks cost American organizations between $300 billion and $1 trillion a year! Advanced attackers targeted five out of six large companies last year, an increase of 40 percent over the previous year. Even worse, 60 percent of all targeted attacks struck small- and medium-sized organizations, so no organization of any size is safe.

Cyberattacks can have not only a devastating impact on a company’s reputation and financial health, but also wide-ranging implications on a company’s accounting and financial reporting.

Back by popular demand, TSCPA’s Cyber Security conference will help you tackle what has become one of the biggest issue facing our profession today.

Mark Burnette is a Shareholder in LBMC’s Information Security practice. LBMC is the 45th largest accounting and professional services firm in the United States. Mark oversees LBMC’s information security consulting services and technical information security assessment capabilities, and serves as the service line leader for LBMC’s PCI (credit card security rules) security practice.

During his decorated career, Mark has served as the President and Global Practice Leader for a national information security consulting company and built and led information security functions for two major publicly-traded corporations. He worked for several years in key leadership roles with two of the Big 6 (now Big 4) accounting firms where he specialized in developing, implementing, assessing, and securing information technology solutions for companies in the healthcare, retail, manufacturing, banking, and insurance industries.

In 2005, while serving as the Global Information Security Officer for international insurance broker The Willis Group, Mark was named the Information Security Executive of the Year at the ISE Southeast Awards. In 2008, while serving as the Executive Director of IT Operations and Security for hotelier Gaylord Entertainment Company, he was named one of Information Security Magazine’s “Security 7” top seven security leaders, and was chosen by ComputerWorld Magazine as one of the Premier 100 IT Leaders for 2009.

In January 2011, the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), the international trade association for information security professionals, named Mark a Fellow. This prestigious honor, which has only been granted to a handful of individuals worldwide, is bestowed by the ISSA Fellow Program for distinguished accomplishments in the field of information security, leadership, and future service to the association and profession. Mark’s unique background allows him to bring a “walk a mile in the shoes” perspective to all of LBMC’s security engagements. His experience building and running information security functions allows him to develop solutions that are relevant, practical, and actionable.

Recognized as an IT security expert by technology think-tank Gartner, Mark has repeatedly been featured as a subject matter expert on ABC and CBS television affiliates and in print media such as CSO, Secure Enterprise, Information Security, and ComputerWorld magazines. He is a regular collaborator with the Middle Tennessee office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and has co-presented on cybersecurity with FBI agents several times. He is a noted author and a frequent speaker to International conferences and specialty groups such as the Tennessee Bar Association, the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants, Information Systems Audit and Control Association, Institute of Management Accountants, Institute of Internal Auditors, & ISSA, and on College and University campuses across the United States. Mark also served as an Adjunct Professor of Accounting at Belmont University for four years, where he taught Accounting Information Systems.

Mark currently serves on the American Institute of CPAs’ national Cybersecurity Working Group. That group of cybersecurity experts has worked on behalf of the AICPA to update existing cybersecurity control descriptions for the CPA profession and to develop a new cybersecurity risk management attestation standard that will be publicly available in May, 2017.

During 2016, the AICPA also tapped Mark to develop a cybersecurity toolkit for its member firms that provides guidance on how CPA firms can develop and staff a cybersecurity consulting function that will allow them to offer cybersecurity services to their clients. The toolkit also provides a description of the nature of services that could be provided and insights on how to ensure they are effectively delivered to clients. In further recognition of Mark’s cybersecurity acumen, the AICPA asked him to lead the development of the AICPA’s official training curriculum on cybersecurity risk assessment and consulting services. This new training course, delivered for the first time in June 2017, will train the next generation of cybersecurity auditors and assessors in the proper scoping, evaluation, execution, review, and reporting of an entity’s cybersecurity posture.
