The Blind Spot: What should an executive expect from information security?

SESSION 4 |  2:00 PM - 2:45 PM | ROOM 2

Decision-making at the executive level is often risk-based. Legal risk, financial risk, market risk, employee risk and supply-chain risk are a few that come to mind right away. What about information security risk? The gap in vocabulary and expectation at the executive level is too big. This session will provide three simple questions to ask of your information security program and what answers you should expect. Whether you are in a position to ask or answer these questions, this session will be helpful.
