October 25, 2017
Minneapolis, MN





The assets of companies, large and small, are facing an increased risk of losing or compromising their IP, confidential personnel and customer information, and diminished market brand to name a few. If unprepared, the consequences of a breach could result in a loss of public and investor confidence, disruption to vital infrastructure, and legal and regulatory sanctions. It is no surprise, then, that the level of board engagement in this area is also increasing. Yet overseeing a company's IT initiatives, particularly the adequacy of cybersecurity, can be a challenging task for directors.

During this presentation, Michael Corey dove into the primary questions a board member should be asking its leadership to understand the threat landscape and the risk mitigation measures being performed to protect the company’s interest.

The following questions were addressed during the presentation from a board member’s point of view:

  • What is our cyber risk?
  • What are we doing about our cyber risk?
  • Are we doing enough?
