NACD - National Association of Corporate Directors

Overview

With increased global integration and connectivity, new threats have arisen that demand corporate board members adopt a greater understanding of, and role in, cybersecurity oversight. Cyber attacks are no longer a matter of if, but when. Boards need to understand their companies’ vulnerabilities, and be prepared to act when a cyber breach threatens the enterprise.

For this reason, NACD is convening an elite group of multinational corporate directors, C-suite executives, cyber experts, global law enforcement officials, and other thought leaders from around the world in Geneva, Switzerland, 17 to 18 April 2018, to  to arm corporate board members with the tools they need to oversee cyber-risk at the very highest level.

NACD Global Cyber Forum
17–18 April 2018
Geneva, Switzerland

Attendees of this unique forum will examine leading board oversight practices, and the intimate discussion will focus on practical, actionable items that board members and key c-suite executives can effectively implement to help defend their companies against cybersecurity risks from around the globe.

Key programming themes will include:

  • Shifting regulatory landscape
    • How will new cyber-regulations, including the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), China's new cybersecurity law, and other key standards and requirements affect global companies in 2018 and beyond?
    • What does this mean for the work of the board?
  • Cross border law enforcement
    • Representatives from the EU's International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol), the US' FBI and DHS, and other international law enforcement agencies will discuss their collaborative activies with the business community.
  • Securing the global company
    • CISOs and non-executive directors from multinational companies will discuss the changing face of cyber hygiene in response to emerging threats and technical advances.
    • This session will also discuss implications regarding management's information needs to provide to board members.
  • The board's evolving role in cyber-risk oversight
    • How are boards keeping pace with the rapidly-changing cyber-threat environment?
    • Seasoned global non-executive directors and cybersecurity experts share leading-edge practices and lessons learned.
    • The session will include findings from roundtables in Germany and London re: adaptation of the principles from NACD's Director's Handbook on Cyber-Risk Oversight.
  • Cyber-breach simulation and peer exchange
    • What happens when senior executives and board members of a fictitious global company respond to a major cyber incident?
    • A cybersecurity expert will lead us through the events on the day of, and in the months following, the discovery of a cyber breach.
    • Attendees will discuss key takeaways in facilitated small-group discussions.
