Corporate Board Oversight of Cybersecurity: A Blueprint for Success

Presented by

John Reed Stark, David R. Fontaine

About this talk

The Gist: What cyber-related actions should corporate boards be undertaking and more importantly, what should corporate secretaries, general counsels, outside lawyers and other corporate advisors be telling their corporate board clients regarding cyber? This webcast offers, for the first time, a realistic, concrete, pragmatic, detailed, sensible and effective vision for corporate board behavior, designed to tackle head-on the mounting and potentially devastating risks that flow from cyber-attacks and other data security incidents. Some More Specifics: With cyber-incidents capturing headlines around the world with increasing frequency, businesses and regulators have come to recognize that cyber-incidents are not a passing trend, but rather in our digitally connected economy, an embedded risk that is here to stay. Our panel will address issues including how cybersecurity risk has clearly elevated itself to the top of corporate agendas; the implications of the SEC’s 2018 Statement on Cybersecurity Interpretive Guidance as it relates to the duties and responsibilities of corporate boards and corporate officers; why corporate directors must now must consider themselves “on notice” when it comes to cybersecurity; and why corporate boards must now take tangible steps to translate their high-level concerns around cybersecurity risks into specific behaviors and precise actions that are identifiable, capable of being readily implemented and heavily documented. Please join John Reed Stark, former Chief of the SEC’s Office of Internet Enforcement, now President of John Reed Stark Consulting LLC and David R. Fontaine, former CEO of Kroll, now Senior Advisor to Duff and Phelps (following Kroll’s acquisition by Duff and Phelps), for this timely and relevant webcast.
