The cyber risk management landscape has changed dramatically over the last year. With the implementation of additional regulations, rapid adoption of the cloud, accommodating the remote workforce, and security breaches that put a spotlight on the importance of cyber hygiene practices and supply chain integrity – there is no doubt that a rapid response to these circumstances is warranted.

But how do we move forward in the face of so many issues, and how do we learn from the mistakes of the past in order to ensure a more responsive and robust cyber risk management program?

During this live webinar, we will discuss the top five lessons learned throughout this momentous year, why they are important, and how to address the challenges each one brings in the future.  You’ll learn:

  • How embracing the cloud yields strategic benefits
  • The cyber supply chain was as vulnerable as the experts always said
  • Approaches to managing cyber risk in the new world of on prem, hybrid, and multi-cloud systems
  • Audit fatigue is real and a genuine drain on your organization
  • The importance of adopting standardized frameworks for consistency
