Speaking to the Board on Cybersecurity

  • Lance Spitzner
  • Saturday, April 7th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Time and time again we understand the need for leadership support on cybersecurity. However it can be challenging communicating to senior leaders, especially Board members, in their terms. How do you translate the technical world of cyber into concise business terms? Who is a Board member, how do they think and what do they want to know? Learn how senior leaders think and operate, what their priorities are, and how you can effectively engage them. Make your security program a success by gaining the support you need.
