Video with Slides | FAIRCON
For our opening keynote, I would like to introduce Larry Clinton, President of the Internet Security Alliance, who will discuss, “How Risk Economics Can Help Us Win the Battle in Cyberspace” to give you a wider perspective on the importance of your risk management work for your organization and beyond. He is an old friend of the FAIR Institute, partnering our organizations as we found ourselves engaged on the same journey to help improve our profession.
Larry is a veteran activist in the field of public policy and corporate governance for high technology. His key argument is that cybersecurity has been largely mis-analyzed by business and government. Technology is just how the attacks occur. We need to get at why attacks occur – almost always for economic reasons.
The ISA and the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) developed the Cyber-Risk Oversight Handbook, which has been highly influential in re-orienting boards see cyber risk in the economic terms they see other strategic risks.Lately, Larry has been working with the World Economic Forum to promote the idea that cybersecurity is one of the environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues that organizations must confront for both corporate and social stability.
