In this episode, Mark and Meditology Services Partner Brian Selfridge discuss how to present cyber security initiatives and risk strategies to senior management.

Learn how to:

  • Provide a concise risk management strategy and overview of key security issues.
  • Build relationships with executives. Learn how they like information delivered and what are their key interests.
  • Create one-page summaries containing best practices and illustrating risk reduction levels. In general, stay away from slide decks and technical details for board-level briefings.
  • Create a 360-view by engaging members of the IT organization, compliance, and legal in structured risk management conversations.
