Do you have confidence in your role in cybersecurity as outlined by the regulators?  Do you understand where cyber risk intersects the risk you manage?  Do your committee members understand your bank’s cybersecurity posture, and more importantly, how committee objectives plug into it?

While your technical team is busy fighting the fight against cybersecurity threats, how can Management ensure they lend the appropriate support?  What simple practices can we adopt to ensure persistent audit readiness?


Management plays a key role in the battle against cyber threats.  This workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Seven Simple Practices a Non-Technical Manager can adopt to facilitate cybersecurity objectives.
  • Keeping It Simple to Succeed
  • Gaining assurance of appropriate cyber risk management.
  • Transferring Information Technology Risk through Insurance
  • Vendor Management Principles
  • Disaster and Incident Response Principles
  • What Documentation Should Management Understand?
  • Establishing the “Security Culture.”
