Cyber security and cyber risk are enterprise-wide issues that touch every part of how we conduct business today. Ownership of cyber risk typically resides with the Chief Information Security Officer who plays a central role. 

This council will provide a groundbreaking, cross-functional global forum with a focus on networking and problem-solving to inform companies about organizational, governance, legal, communications and technical responses to  governing information use and protection.  

Potential Topics include:

  • The changing legal landscape across multiple jurisdiction
  • Governance of cybersecurity, including the role of the board
  • How to re-think data governance
  • What are the right messages to stakeholders?
  • Reputation Risk from cybersecurity events

Who should join?

Why join the Cyber Risk and Security Management Council?

Being a member of this forum has enabled real conversations and facilitated pragmatic solutions. I boil the value down to three key things: First, the practicality of the information - you are talking at real solution level, including the pitfalls, not just a having a theoretical debate.Second, you are with equivalent size companies who face similar challenges. Third, the network that you build. Having access to this calibre of people, in a dedicated environment for 24 hours is well worth it.
