Senior business leaders are being held accountable for managing cyber-risk in their companies. Unfortunately, many executives do not feel comfortable with this responsibility due to their lack of technical background and their limited understanding of cyber.
Brett Williams keynote helps close the gap in language, perception and understanding between those charged with strategic business decisions and the people who have technical responsibility for cybersecurity in the company. Brett’s substantial experience with corporate boards and other groups of senior leaders has made him an expert at identifying the key cybersecurity issues for business leaders. He has a unique ability to translate technical jargon into the language of senior executives. Brett equips his audience to ask the CIO and CISO tough questions, and more importantly, to understand the answers. Each keynote is customized to the audience and includes a discussion of the current threat environment, costs associated with a breach, an executive primer on current cyber defense techniques and their shortfalls and suggestions on how to identify the essential elements of a good cyber defense program. Every participant will walk out the door with three to four specific action items they can immediately implement when they get back to the company.
