Learn how to enhance your credibility by more effectively communicating cybersecurity risk to senior management.
Description

Details

Communicating Cybersecurity Risk effectively depends on your ability to understand and respond to the questions business leaders want answered. The CxO responsible for cybersecurity needs a practical way to answer the question "How much risk do we have?" with a credible financial metric familiar to risk management decision-makers.

Join this session to hear from Mr. Jack Jones, the inventor of Factor Analysis of Information Risk, the foundational IP for The Open Group Risk Taxonomy, and Mr. Gareth Webley, CISO of Eaton Corporation, and learn how to enhance your credibility by more effectively communicating cybersecurity risk to senior management.

Cybersecurity risk management decisions are greatly enhanced when business leaders understand the financial loss exposure faced by the organization. The Open Group Risk Taxonomy can be applied to accurately analyze, measure, and quantify cybersecurity risk, expressing loss exposure in a relevant financial metric. When a clear and familiar cost-benefit statement is presented to senior leaders, well-informed business decisions can be made resulting in better alignment of IT security and business objectives. The Risk Taxonomy should be adopted by organizations to enhance existing risk management programs resulting in more efficient and strategic use of resources.
