The cyber risk environment continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Ransomware attacks are rampant, and the financial implications of a major systemic cyber loss event are a huge concern for all UK companies.
Historically many companies have focused their cyber risk management efforts on technical security controls, but given that this expenditure can be undermined if the actions and attitudes of your management and workforce are contributing towards heightened cyber risk, maybe it is time to revisit these priorities?
Boards and NEDs play a key role in overseeing organisational cyber security - research undertaken by Willis Towers Watson (2020 Cyber Claims Report) shows that over two thirds of reported cyber incidents continue to be directly attributed to the actions of people or, in other words, an organisation’s management and workforce. This is a cultural issue as much it is an IT issue that boards in particular need to be on top of.
Please join us at a ‘forward-looking’ webinar as we consider the questions boards and NEDs should be asking:
- How has the cyber risk landscape changed in terms of Technology and People?
- How can you assess how well a company is managing its culture and people risk?
- What are the latest tools and techniques at the disposal of boards?
- What can you do to manage the reputational and financial risks?
The session will be led by Louis Cooper, CEO at NEDA , and will consider the views and insight from Glyn Thoms, Head of GB FINEX Cyber & TMT and Dean Chapman, Lead Consultant (GB Cyber Risk Solutions), both at Willis Towers Watson; Andrew Beckett, Managing Director, EMEA Cyber Risk Practice Leader at Kroll; a representative from the National Cyber Security Centre (‘NCSC’) and Alison Vincent, Portfolio NED and experienced CTO, CISO and business leader in large global ICT companies, who will provide a sense-check on how boards are dealing with this risk area.
