C-suites and boards must collaborate with security leaders to build cyber resilient organizations. Yet, too often, security leaders struggle to convey clear opportunities for senior leaders to engage in the necessary enterprise-wide approach to cyber risk. The result: Security doesn’t get the resources or support it needs and security efforts remain an uphill battle.
In this session, Advisory Board security expert Allyson Vicars shares key takeaways from deep industry research on how to have a productive conversation on security and risk with the most senior leaders in your health care organization.
