Managing Cyber Risk – Effective Communication with the Board presented at CISOseattle 2016

by Benjamin Beberness, Paul Moulton, Tim Bowersock, Steve Poulson,

Summary : CISOs are confident in what cybersecurity threat information to present to the board and what type of information the board wants to hear. However, much of this information is either misunderstood or too technical. How can CISOs streamline the process and provide more actionable information? For the board to make decisions regarding an organization’s cybersecurity risk posture, they need quantitative information framed in the context of relevant business concerns. This interactive dialogue provides insights on the tools and processes modern CISOs can use to translate cybersecurity risk into a language that non-security practitioners can understand and use to drive decisions.
Executive boardrooms are intimate and interactive sessions designed to foster dynamic dialogue around a specific, strategic topic. These private, closed-door discussions encourage attendee participation and are limited to 15 attendees.
