CyVaR for CFOs & Board Members

CyVaR for CFOs & Board Members

With the daunting task of fiduciary responsibility, profitability, and overall corporate governance, in your role as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) or as a Board member, you need to understand that the value of your business is secure. A large part of that equation rests in the hands of understanding the financial impact of your cyber risk. Questions that challenge you may include:

  • Why am I investing in security infrastructure and what's the ROI?
  • How do I know that we've actually lowered our risk exposure?
  • As my business changes through M&A, new cyber risks and adding new business applications, how can I get the quickest view of the impact on my overall corporate risk?

Industry Talk

"While cybersecurity risk is often considered an intimidating area for directors to address due to its technical nature, it is important to remember that directors are not required to be experts in this area but are entitled to rely on management and outside experts for advice."
