Implementing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework was first introduced in 2014 as a voluntary standard for critical infrastructure organizations. Increasingly, organizations across all sectors are recognizing cybersecurity as an existential risk and are implementing the Framework.

This session will provide a short overview of the Framework and address the value proposition and key considerations in structuring an effective implementation. More specifically, risk managers will learn key “how to” information on implementing the assessment gained from first-hand experience at Microsoft. Finally, the session will cover different visualization methods as well as alternatives for benchmarking and external review.

Third-Party Security Risk: Where's My Data and Who Has Access to It?
Most companies are part of an interconnected digital ecosystem of customers, third party providers and other business partners. It’s imperative to understand these relationships and know where your data is and who has access to it. Developing and implementing a formal third-party security oversight and assessment process is a key component of an overall enterprise risk management program and should be a focus of any information security and cyber risk activity. This session will provide an overview of third-party security risk, common misconceptions, relevant regulatory drivers and key components of successful programs.

Communication Matters: Exploring Ways of Discussing Cybersecurity with Internal and External Stakeholders

Cybersecurity risk management has become an important area of focus for most organizations—Gartner estimates that 80% of security risk management leaders are being asked to present to executives on the state of their security and risk program. Some organizations find it challenging to know what areas to focus on when discussing information security internally with senior leadership and the Board of Directors, or externally with auditors and critical vendors, organizations. This session will help you get an accurate representation of your company’s cybersecurity performance, and will cover best practices for communicating this information in a business context.

Clear Line of Sight: Communicating Cyber Risk to the Board

Cyber has evolved from an IT issue to a governance matter. Boards of Directors are increasingly being held accountable by stakeholders for not only understanding the network security and privacy risks facing their businesses, but also are expected to take an active role in managing their organization’s strategy for mitigating and responding to attacks and data breaches. With myriad issues and risks facing an enterprise, just getting on the agenda of a board meeting can be a daunting task for any risk manager. This session will cover the keys to effectively presenting Cyber Risk Management to the Board of Directors.

Understanding the New Landscape of Cyber, Terror and Cyber-Terror Risks

Although cyber-related breaches, as we have come to know them, will continue, they will be joined in increasing numbers by more aggressive and dangerous events, recognized as cyber-terrorism. These events can be against soft targets as well as substantial hard targets such as major venues and events. This session will  provide an overview of various legislative actions at the state and federal levels to address measures that must be taken to protect privacy and protected information and how to respond in the event of a breach. The speakers will also address significant legislation directed at the government’s participation with the private sector in risk mitigation, loss sharing and information sharing between the public and private sectors (the SAFETY Act and the Cybersecurity Act of 2015).

Managing Risks by Unburdening the Overburdened CISO

Many CISOs are expected to be technically and operationally ‘cyber savvy’ in addition to being seasoned risk management professionals. As the Internet of Things continues to evolve and public scrutiny and regulatory oversight increase, traditional approaches to managing cyber risks must also evolve. Repositioning and refocusing the organizational responsibilities and alignment for cyber risk management establishes the dedicated efforts required, and leverages the skills needed, for effective risk management.

By the Numbers: How to Quantify Your Cyber Risk and Take Strategic Actions

Cyber risk, especially business interruption due to a cyber event, is difficult to estimate given its specificity to each organization’s business model and IT infrastructure. Rough estimates using simplistic approaches do not adequately account for specifics and cannot be relied upon for strategic risk management decision making. During this session learn about the assumptions made about cyber value-at-risk and cyber business interruption risk quantification, the practical steps that can be taken to place a real dollar value on potentially crippling risks to the organization, and how this data can be used for strategic cyber risk transfer and risk mitigation decision making across the enterprise.

Legislating Risk Management: The NY Department of Financial Services Cybersecurity Requirements 

The New York Department of Financial Services’ updated “Cybersecurity Requirements for Financial Services Companies” became effective on March 1, 2017, and is an important step in the ongoing national dialogue about reasonable and necessary cybersecurity standards for all businesses (not just regulated entities). The regulations include components of various existing federal and state law requirements, as well as controls that are recognized as “best practices” for data security. While the regulations apply to financial services companies, the breadth and scope of the regulations serve as a valuable guideline for mitigating data security risks—whether you work for a covered entity or not.

  • David W. Opderbeck, PhD, Seton Hall University School of Law

2:15 pm - 2:30 pm Coffee/Networking Break
2:30 pm - 3:30 pm Breaking Down Barriers between Cyber Risk Management and Cyber Security
Too often organizations consider cyber security budgets and cyber risk management budgets separately. Today’s business environment demands a holistic risk management approach that looks at what risks we should avoid and what risks we should mitigate, accept or transfer. In this session, we will explore how that ideal structure can be developed when an organization’s information technology department is talking to the risk management department. Learn how organizational functions can work together and proactively own cyber risk including information security, general counsel, finance and business leaders from all parts of a business.
