Executives at all levels of government, industry, and academia are faced with a troubling paradox. Success in a globalized economy demands the storage and sharing of sensitive information. But how do you protect your systems from those who seek to exploit not only your digital vulnerabilities but also human behavior?
This program will detail the key internal and external risk factors facing organizations including the financial and reputational costs at stake. Panelists from academia, the private sector, government, and law enforcement, will explore a number of important issues, such as:
- building and maintaining an educated and adaptable cyber security workforce;
- establishing an effective monitoring and reporting organizational structure; and
- creating an informed cyber culture across all levels of organization.
Join us to learn more about every executive’s cyber responsibilities.
This event is sponsored by Excelsior College’s School of Business and Technology and National Cybersecurity Institute.
