NACD - National Association of Corporate Directors

Home-field Advantage: Leveraging Your Assets Against Cyberattacks

June 28, 2018 | New York, NY,

Event Detail

Join NACD and RSM for a complimentary discussion about how organizations are utilizing real-world scenarios and an understanding of their own environment to develop cost-effective strategies that control their liabilities during a cyberattack.

Daimon Geopfert, RSM’s national security and privacy leader and “ethical hacker,” will share insights and lead a discussion on ways to assess organizational vulnerabilities and how you can maximize your “home-field advantage” to reduce the likelihood of a cyberbreach and the damages associated with a cyberattack. Topics covered will include these:

  • Threat overview – Many organizations plan their defense strategy around hacking techniques that were common 10 years ago. But what are the cyberbreach tactics that can be anticipated today?   
  • Scenario approach to managing security – How can organizations use real-world events to mature their own security posture?
  • Threat modeling – How can boards and the C-suite evaluate the effectiveness of their security program?
  • Regulatory obligations and outlook – Discuss the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC’s) recent guidance on cybersecurity risks and incident disclosures.
