Easy transition so far but that depends on project. I don’t mind my job anymore and make a little bit more money. Definitely some overlap between IT audit and cyber

I’m trying to transfer now and it’s been a bear, any insight?

Wayyyyyyy better, roles aren’t that similar but I guess it depends what type of cyber project you are on

Are you on the strategy side or have you moved into more technical roles?

I heard cyber in the big 4 is all third party risk management

Lol a good amount but definitely not all

Yes. I used to do IT Audit at KPMG focusing mostly on SOX but now I work at a regional firm doing SOC 1/SOC 2 and HITRUST. We do provide other services such as PCI, ISO, IT Risk Assessments, Pen testing, vulnerability management, etc but I’m not involved with those. It’s still audit and I my prior experience is relevant, the subject matter and focus is different. Of course cyber is a big field and firms offer multiple services.

I am joining a post-IPO company with an ESPP and an option to pay cash to cover for taxes on RSU grant. This company has grown incredibly over the last few years and trading at several times it’s revenue. I want to bet on the company but not too much. What’s more lucrative, pay taxes for RSU vest with cash or enroll in ESPP(15% discount). Don’t want to do both.

Hi,

If you moved to internal audit in industry from a big4 external audit, can you explain the work you do & how does the end to end process work like scoping, testing and reporting ? How different is it from external audit ?

I am trying to move to industry but due to my lack of experience in IA , haven’t been able to answer the IA related questions well.

E.g for FSA you always do scoping with your financial audit team, but I guess that’s not how it works in IA.

TIA
