AISA Webinar: Five keys for cyber risk communicators

Hosted by the AISA Brisbane Branch, please join Shamane Tan, author and Chief Growth Officer at Privasec for an online discussion including tips and tricks, on how to effectively communicate the importance of cyber security being a business risk and not just an IT problem with top level managers, executives or directors.




Topic: Five keys for cyber risk communicators
Most people in our cybersecurity industry are expert SMEs however, for the longest time, and this is dating all the way back to the 1990s, there is problem and gap that still exists till this very day. The world's first CISO in 1994 identified cybersecurity to be a business risk, not just an IT problem, and it is only in recent years that security leaders in APAC became acquainted with the term cyber risk. It has become increasingly important to bring cybersecurity discussions into the boardroom, but how does one do that effectively? 

In this special session, Shamane Tan taps into her global conversations with the C-Suite and Board Directors to share the five keys for cyber risk communicators.

Participants will have the opportunity at the end of the session to ask questions of the speaker via the Q&A Chat box.
