The ideal opportunity for senior security practitioners to ‘sound-board’ and question a panel of actual Board directors on priority challenges around cyber risk management, reporting, communications, response, awareness and business engagement.
Guests are invited to talk to the Board and ask the questions they would like to ask their own Board of directors if they had the chance – and with none of the consequences! Board Executives spanning Chairman, CEO, CFO, CIO, CMO, HR roles from well-known organisations will share insights on how CISOs can improve the security leadership offering and vice-versa.
Top of their game CISO/CSOs will also share the steps and approaches taken within their own companies, as well as tips on how to align culture and mindset across security-business technology and legal. Additionally, an investor perspective will be presented, to reflect how investors are increasingly asking Boards about how they are managing and mitigating cybersecurity because of litigation and reputation risk, amidst a fast-moving threat landscape and off the back of digital innovation.
