Session I - Building an Effective Cyber Security Strategy

This presentation provides leading practices to articulate to executives the case for action and appropriate practical approaches to crafting an effective cyber-security strategic program.

This presentation enables you to make the case that cyber-security should be an integral part of your corporate risk management program. Examples demonstrate how to adequately communicate to senior leaders the expanding risk and threat landscape plus the increasing burden of stakeholder oversight. A step by step approach using practical techniques guides you through the complex process of building an effective, tailored cyber-security strategy and communicating the appropriate solutions to executive management. This strategic, programmatic approach allows you to make better investment decisions in order to reduce the chances of a cyber-security incident and the impact when one occurs.

Learning Objectives:

Effectively communicate the cyber risks, threats and burdens of increasing stakeholder oversight to senior executives.

Systematically develop an effective cyber security strategy tailored to your business by following a practical step by step approach.

Convincingly demonstrate due diligence in making better cyber security investment decisions.
