Cybersecurity incidents are occurring with increasing frequency and impact, and as a result, cyber risk must be a point of emphasis for the board of directors.

Our diverse panel of experts will debate and discuss the cybersecurity threat landscape, trends in regulatory enforcement and director liability litigation, and cyber risk governance best practices. The panel will also share stories and lessons learned from their professional experience and respective areas of expertise.
