Understanding the Board’s Perspective on Cybersecurity

Presented by

Andy Ellis, CSO of Akamai and Chris Wysopal, CTO & CISO of Veracode

About this talk

Following the onslaught of high-profile cyberattacks reported in the past twelve to eighteen months, cyber security has become a more frequent topic in board-level conversations. How should the CISO respond to these new challenges and pressures? Using data from an NYSE survey of nearly 200 corporate directors, two of the industry’s best-known voices – Andy Ellis, CSO of Akamai and Chris Wysopal, CTO & CISO of Veracode –discuss how CISOs can elevate the security conversation to a board-level discussion. Wysopal and Ellis also discuss key questions such as: •What are board members’ biggest fears regarding cyberattacks? •Who do board members hold accountable when a major breach does occur at your company? •How do board members prefer information be presented about risk posture and strategies? •What metrics are most effective for gaining buy-in for your risk reduction strategy?
