Event Details


Topic: Building and Nurturing Your Modern Information Security Risk Program


In this presentation, three-time CISO, Demetrios Lazarikos (Laz), will explore topics that are top of mind for Executives, Board of Directors, and practitioners that have direct involvement in building and assessing modern Information Security strategies and programs. Operational auditors can gain insight in models that analyze and quantify information risk in financial terms, in contrast to risk assessment frameworks that focus their output on qualitative or weighted scales. Laz will cover how to build a foundation and develop a scientific approach to information risk management and provide real world examples and best practices to effectively report to the Board, automate workflow, and increase your budget!  This is a pragmatic discussion that is not to be missed!
