Risky Business: Strengthening Your Cyber Risk Management And Culture To Build Trust
Presented by: Jack Jones, Author and Chairman, The FAIR Institute
As cybercrime continues to rise, it needs to be a key feature on the corporate risk management agenda. But gaining and maintaining the trust of senior executives, the Board, regulators, and customers is challenging. Checking boxes in a compliance framework won’t do it, nor will the lame risk measurement practices that are commonplace today. In order to build and maintain trust, we need to fundamentally change our approach to risk management.
