TOPIC:

Creating a Relevant Cyber Security Governance Framework: Supporting Business Digital Transformation

PRESENTER:  

Dominic Vogel (Chief Security Strategist, Cyber.SC)

 

ABSTRACT

Today’s businesses are transforming how they operate. This change is a result of major technological, intellectual, and behavioural changes that are affecting all industries and magnifying cybersecurity challenges to seemingly uncontrollable risk levels. Much of this can be attributed to advancements in cloud, data analytics, mobile, and social media. The rise of these tools and technologies has created a pressing need for formal guidance which can help organizations drive cybersecurity programs more effectively.

Improved governance is necessary for organizations that are struggling to define an infrastructure that aligns with business needs while at the same time follows industry standards and norms. Governance plays a critical role in achieving the security objectives of the organization, not only for current needs, but for future challenges as well. This talk will address:

• Pressing need for formal guidance to help organizations with cybersecurity challenges

• Practical steps for establishing relevant governance that aligns with and supports business strategy
