Event Details

In April, ecoDa, AIG and The Internet Security Alliance (ISA) launched a pan Europe handbook on cyber risk management for corporate boards of directors in Europe. Since then many companies across Europe are now working in a ‘new normal’.
What does this mean for their cyber security and risk management ? With increasing importance on the digital channel what steps do companies need to make to help protect their resilience ? What are the opportunities that emerge by getting it right ?
Nowadays, cybersecurity is perhaps the most dangerous threat companies are facing, and the reality is that cybercriminals do not discriminate by size, and the aftermath of an attack can devastate small businesses as well as bigger ones.

The current environment makes it even more urgent to address the challenges of cybersecurity as cyber criminals around the world are capitalizing on this crisis to multiply their attacks. The crisis is transforming working methods in a way that is likely to be lasting, and means that businesses and board members must be all the more vigilant when it comes to cyber attacks.
Our panelists will discuss the issue and investigate how boards could integrate cybersecurity in their strategy to ensure the safety of their companies.
