Part I: CISO Working Group Challenge

Led by IANS CEO Phil Gardner, this working group session will focus on corporate-wide cybersecurity risk management and Board / CISO communications. Phil will offer his perspective on why Board / CISO interactions are often fraught with misunderstandings and how new technologies and emerging regulations might actually exacerbate these misunderstandings. The session will conclude with a participant role playing exercise. During this exercise, CISOs have the chance to share ideas, feedback and advice with peers. At the end of the role playing exercise, CISO participants will share takeaways with the larger group.
