Join Ilan Abadi, Chief Information Security Officer at Teva Pharmaceutical, as he describes effective real-world strategies for presenting OT Risk to the Board of Directors.

A key goal of the BoDs of most enterprises is to maintain an appropriate balance between protecting the security of the enterprise, its ability to function, and control financial outlays from losses.†The Board cares about business outcomes as opposed to technical details.†When addressing the Board of Directors, learn to anticipate and answer these 5 key questions:

1.††††††When is cybersecurity not an IT issue?

2.††††††What are the legal implications of OT risk?†

3.††††††How can the BoD get and maintain adequate access to cybersecurity expertise?

4.††††††What is an adequate risk management framework and budget?†

5.††††††Which risks can be avoided, which can be accepted, which can be mitigated through technology and which can be transferred through insurance?

Daniel Shugrue, Senior Director of Industrial Cybersecurity, will also discuss how a modern OT cybersecurity platform can provide a spectrum of mitigation and protection options for reducing key risks to your companys most critical functions.
