Directors are constantly faced with the need to find the best ways to discuss and quantify cybersecurity risk. They need to more clearly understand the financial exposure that cyberbreach incidents represent to their business, and be able to discuss technical issues based on what they mean to the company’s bottom line. Boards should strive to be able to hold discussions with their management teams about cybersecurity and cyber risks where cyber risk is no longer evaluated in technical terms or in "red-yellow-green" heat maps, but in the economic language of business.
Join NACD and RiskLens for this roundtable event with Nick Sanna, RiskLens CEO, and Jack Jones, RiskLens co-founder and creator of the FAIR standard, on November 13 in San Francisco. We’ll discuss strategies and methods that will help you to quantify your organization’s cybersecurity risks and identify the questions you should ask of your management teams in order to better discuss these risks in business terms.

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.
