" Information security and IT are two rather different things, and organisations don't realise that yet".

As EU CyberSec Month and USA Cybersecurity Awareness Month continue, so does our focus on online safety for business. Cybersecurity expert Lisa Traina introduces AICPA & CIMA staffer Julia Woislaw to the world of 'ethical hacking', a technique which saw her featured on NBC news.


Lisa deploys over 30 years of experience as a CPA, CITP, and CGMA to assist financial institutions, nonprofit organizations, hospitals, professional services firms, and other organizations in implementing measures to secure data and manage risks.


  • Common cybersecurity issues that any business should identify and fix as a priority.
  • What a 'white hat' hacker is.
  • Why a business may actually WANT to be hacked.
  • The 5 Steps that every business should take to boost their defences against cyber threats.




It's recorded by a growing team of AICPA & CIMA staff from offices across the world.
