After nearly 20 years of trying and billions of dollars in investment, why are organizations still struggling with cybersecurity? In fact, the problem seems to be getting worse, not better. Answering this question requires moving beyond a purely technical examination of cybersecurity by looking at the challenge more broadly. Even if we resolved the technical issues, cybersecurity would remain a hard problem for three reasons:
It’s not just a technical problem
The rules of cyberspace are different from the physical world
Cybersecurity law, policy and practice are not yet fully developed
What are the different types of cyber actors, how their motivations differ, and why that matters
Why cybersecurity is a hard problem to solve
What are macro trends driving the evolution of the cyber threat
What are the emerging cyber threats on the horizon
How you can reduce your organization’s cyber risk despite these trends
What are the new ways to think about cybersecurity that will make your organization more effective
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Senior executives, Chief information officers, Chief information security officers, and leaders from any company or organization who want to learn how to confront their cybersecurity challenges more effectively.
Cybersecurity professionals who want to gain new insights in how to talk with customers about cybersecurity more persuasively.
