Risk Management in Cybersecurity

Today, business and fiduciary executives are faced with the harsh realization that potential financial exposures and reputational damages from cyber threats are excessive and need to be managed and reduced. Unlike other, well established enterprise risk classes however, cyber risk is acute, poorly understood and rapidly increasing. In order to effectively manage this risk, integrated multi-stakeholder cyber risk management methods must be developed. This seminar will provide attendees with a holistic understanding of the cyber risk management roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders within the enterprise and the key decision points required as they make the journey from their current level of protection to what would be deem a reasonable standard-of-care by customers and regulators.

Topics to be discussed include:
  • How should security leaders determine and report their current state-of-protection?
  • How should risk leaders determine their inherent risk and residual exposure?
  • How should financial exposure be reported to business and the Board?
  • How should fiduciary leaders decide on what is a reasonable standard-of-care?
  • What risk treatments should be considered in managing cyber risks?
  • How can protection enhancements be aligned with business interests?
