NJ NACD Event Page Header: Cybersecurity


Sony, Yahoo, Equilar, Uber, Target, . . . the list of companies experiencing major cybersecurity breaches goes on and on.  And smaller companies are not immune to cybersecurity risks, including attacks of ransomware, malicious code and vulnerabilities passed along by their own business partners and employees.  The cost of a cyber-attack can range from a few thousand dollars to many millions in damage to customers and reputation, business interruption and remediation. While boards identify cybersecurity as a primary area of risk, they also believe that they can improve their own knowledge as well as their level of confidence in their corporation’s readiness to defend against and deal with the aftermath of a cyber-attack.

A sampling of topics to be covered by our panel of experts includes:

• The most salient current threats as well as the next generation
  of cyber-risk from new technologies

• What are the key exposures to your company both internally and externally
• How to grill your CIO/CISO about what defensive actions the company is taking
• When and how your company should engage with law enforcement

Attendees will also receive a copy of the NACD Directors’ Series Handbook:
