The magnitude of recent events is posing unprecedented challenges to corporate boards, C-suite executives, and shareholders. For this reason, it’s critically important for business continuity, incident management, disaster recovery, and emergency management professionals to stay informed of developments in the cybersecurity arena.
Join Dr. Nader Mehravari, Chief Scientist with Axio, and David White, Axio Founder and COO, as they keynote day two of the 2018 Continuity Insights Management Conference with their presentation, Business Interrupted – Cyber Risk Gets Physical.
This session will characterize the expanding cyber risk environment, review key cyber threats, including threats to the ever-increasing convergence of physical and cyber domains, discuss key challenges faced by organizations in effectively managing their cyber exposure, and present actionable strategies for successfully managing the risk of cyber business interruption. While cyber risk cannot be eliminated, it can be effectively managed (or solved) through cyber resilience optimization to meet the business needs of our organizations.
