Cyber Security: Bridging the Gap between the Cyber threat landscape and Business Culture
It is difficult to quantify cyber risks in terms of business impact to executive leaders; and CISOs are having a tough time in communicating the value cybersecurity programs have to leadership. Using the ‘The Six Principles of Resilience for Digital Business Risk and Security’ this 2-day workshop aims to collaborate with security and c-level leaders to educate, communicate, and build a strategy to define business impact in relation to cyber threats. Using recent attacks and breaches as examples, participants will use tools and techniques to explain cybersecurity value and impact to the business from both a quantitative and qualitative perspective.

Research identifies a gap in appreciation and appropriate leveraging of the security leadership role in bridging cybersecurity with business. The six principles that include, “Move from checkbox compliance to risk-based thinking” and “Move from protecting the infrastructure to supporting organizational outcomes” (Peter Firstbrook, of Gartner) highlight the type of transformation needed as organizations assimilate cybersecurity into their business. A cybersecurity program that is truly integrated into business strategy is lacking in many organizations, treating cybersecurity as insurance or simply suggestions. Recent attacks have proven cybersecurity must be leveraged to ensure the competitive advantage and longevity of the business; this workshop will help explain how. Security leaders and business executives will benefit from this program by gaining the ability to quantify and communicate cybersecurity business value.
