Thematic roundtables are interactive discussions in small groups. Moderated by seasoned industry experts and practitioners, they will address a compelling technology trend, issue, demonstration or an inspiring customer case. This is your chance to join insightful discussions to share experiences and get new and actionable ideas from peers and experts. 

Roundtable 1

Managing Cyber Risk in the Dark – An Idiot’s Guide!

You cannot manage cyber risk unless you measure it. Learn from the mistakes of others and focus on what is important to the business i.e. “Meaningful Metrics”. Establish a cross functional collaborative approach and baseline that is contextual to your organisation. Stop “knee jerk” reactive investment into the latest tech and become proactive and strategic. Armed with “real numbers” get “buy in” from the business and manage by leveraging Cyber KPI’s and Cyber KRI’s to manage your cyber risk framework.
