Topic:  The Urgency to Treat Cybersecurity as a Business Decision

Cybersecurity is not just the worry of CISOs or cybersecurity leaders of a company.  Board level and C-Suite executives care profoundly but, in most cases, don’t understand their organization’s Cyber Risk Program. As the lines blur between business models and the technology that supports them, CISOs need to consider the risks, security priorities, and investments that impact their business outcomes and be able to communicate those considerations in concrete and non-technical terms to critical stakeholders.  This webinar will give insight into how today’s CISO can better do this.
