Panel: How the C-Suite, Board, & CISO Can Communicate Better

Cybersecurity has become a crucial part of business operations, but CISOs still struggle to communicate its values and capabilities to the C-Suite and board. Some executive leaders regard it with vague understanding while others allow its processes so long as business is not disrupted. However, if proper security patches are not deployed in a timely fashion, this can lead to unresolved vulnerabilities that threat actors can exploit—and if employees from the top down do not engage in good cyber hygiene behaviors, then those vulnerabilities will only grow. Join our conversation as we discuss how CISOs can communicate effectively about cybersecurity with the C-suite and board, what solutions and strategies work, and how you can help executives embrace security as a business enabler, not a disrupter.
