Companies that are undergoing major changes, such as M&As or IPOs, are learning the hard way that it's better to spend more on improving their security postures than spend less and suffer dramatic valuation reductions due to cyber gaps. As a result, security leaders are sitting in on more and more board meetings, but they're facing a language barrier, as they try to translate technical risks into business impacts -- a language the board understands.

In this webcast, senior managers and partners from top-tier global private equities EQT (Petter Weiderholm) and Francisco Partners (Eran Gorev), together with the CEO of CYE, the global cybersecurity leader (Reuven Aronashvili), will share their war stories about the role of cybersecurity in the boardroom. They will also provide tips for CISOs in board discussions; what the cyber risk dashboard should include and best practices to make smarter investment decisions in an evolving cyber threat landscape.
