Securing the Future Enterprise Today - Build Pervasive Cyber Resilience Now

  • Wayne Dennis, Security Lead - Products, Accenture

    With the proliferation of more and more sensitive data, expanding connectivity, and the adoption of automated processes, new research from Accenture (NYSE: ACN) reveals that C-suite and IT decision makers need to embrace a different approach to cybersecurity to effectively protect against future cyber risks. While most companies have a chief information security officer (CISO) or assigned cybersecurity to a C-suite executive, such as a chief information officer (CIO), often, these leaders have limited influence on cybersecurity strategy outside their departments. Additionally, nearly half of CISOs acknowledge that their responsibilities for securing the organization are growing faster than their ability to address security issues.

    In the study “Securing the Future Enterprise Today - 2018", 73 percent of the more than 1,400 C-level executives polled, agreed that cybersecurity staff and activities need to be dispersed and executed throughout all parts of the organization, but cybersecurity remains centralized in 74 percent of companies. Moreover, there is little indication that C-suite executives expect to shift more responsibility for cybersecurity to business units. For example, 25 percent of non-CISO executives say business unit leaders are accountable for cybersecurity today and a similar number believe business unit leaders should be responsible in the future.

Regulation and Risk Management: Quantitative Methods for Managing Cyber Risk

  • Vincent Voci, Senior Policy Manager, Cyber, Intelligence, and Security, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
  • Doug Clare, Vice President for Security Solutions, FICO

Cyber risk continues to be a front-of-mind issue for businesses of all stripes, and the incessant pace of new breaches and the resulting string of regulations ensure that this will be the case for the foreseeable future. While once viewed in terms of absolutes, more companies are looking at cyber risk management along a continuum of risk and reward and are deploying time-proven methods of quantitative risk management to the cyber problem.  This session will discuss developments in the world of regulation and enforcement, as well as the way in which quantitative methods can be used to measure, predict, and mitigate risk in the uncertain world of cyber security.

By the end of 2018, there will be over 23 billion connected devices. What does this mean for the devices and internet traffic that connect to your networks?
