In this session, we'll discuss which departments typically hold each piece of the cyber security puzzle, as well as how to communicate between departments in a common risk language. Attendees will discover the reciprocal benefits of developing an integrated, iterative, and proactive governance program. This is a recording of a previous event.

The financial and reputational damages of cyber attacks cannot be underestimated as technology continues to advance. In 2017, the occurrence of data breaches increased by 45%. In 2018, cyber attacks cost companies an average of $8 million. Companies have therefore gone to great lengths to develop comprehensive policies that protect their assets. However, just because a policy exists doesn’t mean it’s followed across the organization.
Too often, organizations operate under the misconception that operationalizing cyber security is the responsibility of the IT department alone when, in reality, many departments (including information security, vendor management, finance, human resources, and more) hold pieces of cybersecurity information. Unfortunately, most organizations lack the ability to engage these departments and put the pieces together.
Taking a holistic, cross-functional approach to cybersecurity is the only way to achieve this level of engagement. This approach also simplifies the IS/IT audit process by ensuring controls designed to protect the company are effective and properly implemented.

Attendees will discover the reciprocal benefits of developing an integrated, iterative, and proactive governance program.
