"Right-Sizing Risk: How to Talk to the Board About Cybersecurity"

9:55am - 10:25am
Curtis Walters
VP, Sales, ExtraHop Networks, Platinum Sponsor
As enterprises have become increasingly reliant on technology for every aspect of operations, technical executives like CIOs and CISOs have found themselves more often in the boardroom. This shift is more recent for CISOs, who increasingly must demonstrate security and compliance at a board level. This move can present a significant challenge. Board members are often not well-versed in technology or security best practices, let alone jargon.
In this session, attendees will hear strategies for discussing security and technology priorities at the board level:
  • Get alignment

  • Build a “roadmap to yes” 

  • Focus on Risk and Reward to the Business

  • Lead with Resilience
