James Snook, Deputy Director for Business, Crime & Skills, Office of Cyber Security & Information Assurance, Cabinet Office
"We’ve done a lot over the past five years and spent quite a lot of money … it hasn’t worked"
Alex Dewedney, Director of Cybersecurity, CESG / GCHQ
"Cyber-security is a significant risk to our investee companies. It is incumbent on us to discuss how company boards are managing cyber-security and their digital infrastructure"
David Patt, Senior Analyst, Corporate Governance & Public Policy, Legal & General Investment Management
The old, niche, same-old-same-old world of cybersecurity is over. The people, methods and processes of the past are not the template for the future.
The 15th e-Crime and Cybersecurity Congress will not be more of the same-old same-old.
Yes, you will still hear from your peers. Yes, you will still be networking with hundreds of the most senior security professionals, but at this event for the first time, you will hear from the people who have the real power to change your boards’ view of cyber. What do they want? Can you deliver it? What happens if you can’t?
NEW KEY THEMES FOR 2017
To succeed as a CISO today it is critical that you understand the external business drivers that matter most to your employers. Your board is under pressure from stakeholders - bond and equity investors (and insurers) to prove you are cyber-secure; ratings agencies and companies are scoring you on cyber-competence; security is becoming a crucial part of corporate social responsibility.
What does this mean? It means that cyber-security is becoming a driver of enterprise value – the P&L, the balance sheet. And that means scrutiny from the markets, scrutiny from the board, scrutiny from the press. Secrecy is not sustainable.
You need to understand these institutions and what they want. You need to prove to them that what you do works.
To mark the end of the old and the beginning of the new we will be addressing the real issues in cyber-security, the real truths facing CISOs and their boards and the real challenges for law enforcement, governments, solution providers and enterprises.
Are you ready?
