Enhancing your Cross-Functional Cyber Resilience

When it comes to cybersecurity, the nature of the risks and the costs of an ineffective approach become more perilous every year. But more notable than even the scale of the danger is how deeply interconnected the risks, and therefore the responses, must be.

Cybersecurity: Crucial Collaborations will focus on the partnerships without which effective cybersecurity is impossible: across functions within an organization; between companies as vendors and vendors’ vendors (and vendors’ vendors’ vendors) all generate risks; between the private and public sectors; and among governments across the globe. It will provide case studies and actionable insights for leaders in IS, risk, ethics & compliance, privacy, legal, communications, HR, business continuity, and the boardroom to build and maintain these critical cybersecurity collaborations.
