  • Presenting Cybersecurity to the Board: Your How-to for Success Presenting Cybersecurity to the Board: Your How-to for Success Richard Clarke, Jasper Osstenjuk, Jake Olcott Recorded: Jan 25 2017 62 mins
    Today, cybersecurity is a #1 concern for board members. But what do they need to know? And how should it be presented?

    Richard Clarke has a pretty good idea. As a senior White House advisor to four U.S. Presidents, a member of three corporate boards, and CEO of Good Harbor Security Risk Management, he’s talked cybersecurity in both the Situation Room and the boardroom.

    Jasper Ossentjuk also knows how to present cybersecurity in the boardroom. As SVP and CISO for TransUnion, Jasper regularly presents information to his Board about his organization's security posture.

    On January 25th at 1:00PM ET, join Richard and Jasper for a discussion of:

    - What cybersecurity metrics and measurements are most important for the board

    - How to graphically represent your cybersecurity program
  • Exploring the Current State of Cybersecurity in the Legal Sector Exploring the Current State of Cybersecurity in the Legal Sector Jake Olcott, VP of Business Development at BitSight Technologies and Jay Jacobs, Sr. Data Scientist at BitSight Technologies Recorded: Jan 19 2017 45 mins
    Despite the fact that third party breaches have been on the rise, organizations may not be doing enough to manage the cybersecurity of all of their critical vendors.

    In fact, the latest BitSight Insights Industry Index report revealed that although companies in the Legal sector have high security ratings and low rates of vulnerabilities, the industry remains a key target for cyber criminals. Therefore, it’s crucial for organizations in this space to understand their cybersecurity posture and improve their vendor risk management techniques.

    Join Jake Olcott, VP at BitSight, and Jay Jacobs, Sr. Data Scientist at BitSight as they discuss data security in the Legal sector and beyond. In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    - How the cybersecurity posture of the Legal sector has changed over time
