Join Jack at the Summit*:
As a profession, we’ve finally gained the attention of the board and our executives. Unfortunately, that attention has been gained in large part because of the major cyber related loss events that have occurred. Now the challenge is to gain, and then maintain, their trust. But what does trust mean in this context? What are they trusting us for, and with, and what (if anything) do we need to do differently? In this session, Jack will share his experiences as a CISO for three different companies, what he’s learned more recently from speaking with board members, as well as what surveys are showing we need to become better at.

Hear Jack Jones, EVP of Research and Development at RiskLens and creator of FAIR, shed light on how to go about quantifying your organization's cyber risk in economic terms.
Jack's session will provided answers to some important questions, including:
- How and why current risk measurement methods fail
- How to lay the foundation for effective risk measurement in your organization
- Common misperceptions regarding cyber risk measurement and why they're wrong.
About this event*:
Information, technology and cybersecurity risk management are near the top of every organization’s priority list. In many cases, however, the subject remains the responsibility of compliance and IT departments despite the pervasive financial, reputational and regulatory risks they represent.
Dealing with an intangible, unpredictable risk to your business that presents tremendous financial, reputational and regulatory threats is a difficult task to grasp, to budge and to keep firmly on the agenda…until disaster strikes.

Hear Jack Jones, EVP of Research and Development at RiskLens and creator of FAIR, give a compelling keynote address, titled "An Unfortunate Gift to Cyber Criminals."
About Jack's keynote*:
Cyber criminals have some inherent advantages -- for example, the ability to pick their target, timing, and techniques. They also have another advantage that is not inherent, but that can be just as powerful -- the fact that most organizations waste resources and are unable to focus on the things that matter most. In this keynote, Jack will share the most common causes for poor cyber risk measurement, as well as the relatively simple things that organizations can do to dramatically improve their cyber risk management focus.

Senior Risk Consultant Isaiah McGowan will be presenting on "Why risk is our bridge between security and business worlds" on April 28 from 10:00 AM to 10:45 AM.
Abstract: There is a need to make well-informed security decisions that align with business expectations. It’s always been there; we’re just more explicit about it today. This session focuses on a core tenant that bridges the gap in communication between security and business focuses: risk. Our most familiar approaches to risk measurement are failing us. What else is out there? And what are the implications for various security disciplines? We will dive into these topics and flesh out a way forward that aligns our security concerns with their business needs.
