How to create a secure climate by embracing technology and change

More detailed information

The global media attention for cybersecurity incidents has an impact on the role of executive management about information security, much more than most executives are willing to admit. Consumers are holding organisations responsible whenever there is a cybersecurity incident that compromises their information and investors are holding organisations responsible when there is a cybersecurity incident because of the financial losses that occur and the devaluation of the organisation on the market. 


Can any executive honestly claim cybersecurity is not their responsibility? Unfortunately, still too many executives completely delegate the cybersecurity responsibility to IT since they are convinced it contains too many technical elements.


This presentation explains how to create a secure climate by embracing technology and change. Executives will learn how to view cybersecurity no longer as an IT expense, but as a critical success factor to long term success. 


This is done by showing to executive management and CIOs the top 3 internal and external threats on cybersecurity, but also the top 3 cyber resilience solutions for organisations today. Expect actual examples, a related movie, but also practical tools and references to help focus on the essentials in cybersecurity.
