  • Speaker: James Tarala

In an age when data breaches are a daily occurrence, senior leadership teams and boards of directors want assurances that their cyber security programs are doing what is required to defend their organization. But at the same time security teams are struggling to quantify risk or find effective strategies for presenting risk to leadership in a way that clearly communicates the reality of the risk an organization is accepting. Even security professionals are struggling to agree how to define or measure risk effectively.

In this presentation, James Tarala will share lessons learned from research into risk management and his experiences communicating about risk to boards of directors and C-Suite leadership teams. He will present specific strategies to consider when measuring risk, communicating risk, and helping security teams realistically setting expectations with business stakeholders. While this topic traditionally has been a nebulous, vague conversation, in this presentation, listeners will learn actionable steps to communicating risk in more effective ways.
