Managing Director Steve Durbin Will Provide Insight Into Why Engaged Boards and Executives Make Better Decisions About How to Align Business and Security Objectives
By: Information Security Forum
NEW YORK - April 17, 2018 - PRLog -- According to the Information Security Forum (ISF), cyber has become a strategic issue, and for many organizations, is a business enabler and increasingly a form of competitive advantage. However, it is clear that it remains difficult for boards to get the correct management information to support their cyber risk discussions and decision making. In order to consistently make better decisions about how to align business and security objectives to manage risk, protect brand reputation, and respond effectively to incidents, boards and senior executives must remain steadfastly engaged.

Business leaders recognize the enormous benefits of cyberspace and how the Internet greatly increases innovation, collaboration, productivity, competitiveness and engagement with customers. Unfortunately, they have difficulty assessing the risks versus the rewards. One thing that organizations must do is ensure they have standard security measures in place. This means going well beyond implementing the latest security tools.

During this webcast, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of the ISF, will look at the challenges faced by CISOs and Board members and offer insights into how to successfully approach cyber security at Board level. Mr. Durbin will explain why engaged boards and executives make better decisions about how to align business and security objectives to manage risk, protect brand reputation, and respond effectively to incidents.
