Panel Dinner: The Frequent Questions Directors Ask About Your Cybersecurity Strategy… and How to Respond
Senior Director and Chief Security Officer for Emerging Markets, Palo Alto Networks
Country Manager, Egypt, IDC
Given the prohibitive costs associated with data breaches and the fact that no business is immune from attack, it is essential that boards of directors adequately oversee their organizations' cybersecurity risk. However, this mandate can be particularly daunting for directors that do not have a technology background.
With the recent increase in data breaches across the financial sector, company directors are increasingly turning to CIOs and CISOs to assure them that their businesses are indeed protected and to regular brief them on new threats and trends as they digitalize services for their customers.
As with other risks the board oversees, directors need to develop a solid understanding of the following issues:
• The cyber risks the company faces and the potential impact of those risks on the business.
• The steps that management are taking to mitigate those risks.
• The company's preparedness for handling such a security breach.
While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to the questions boards should be asking in its oversight of cybersecurity, this VIP dinner will explore some of the more frequent and relevant questions that arise within the banking sector, shining a light on key areas such as regulatory compliance, incident response, and risk management.
