Navigating Foreseeable Cybersecurity Risks - February CEO Breakfast Meeting

Navigating Foreseeable Cybersecurity Risks - February CEO Breakfast Meeting

Friday, February 3, 2023 (7:30 AM - 9:00 AM) (PST)


Despite years of cybersecurity investment, cyber threats and attacks are at an all-time high. The root cause of cybersecurity failures is due to decision-making failures and not technology failures.

Regardless of how large the cybersecurity investment is, incidents are happening and will continue to happen. History shows that you can't spend or outsource your way out of the situation. Therefore, the right approach is a business-oriented approach—managing risk in the context of business priorities and outcomes to balance an organization's risk appetite with prioritized investments to achieve a desired business outcome. This approach is the new imperative for effective IT and cyber risk management.

During this session, you will learn how to:

  1. Unify compliance, risk and other requirements around business objectives
  2. Gain multiple levels of insight for smarter decision making
  3. Prioritize your compliance efforts to create a foundation for risk
