Chapter Meeting: The Business of Cybersecurity: Case study of a Ransomware Attack

Cybersecurity risk is business risk.  On a daily basis, we see headlines about a new cyberattack – casinos, consumer product and cyber companies, government, and even our school districts. Security executives and risk leaders must adapt how they manage and report cyber risk, especially as regulators begin to hold boards and the C-suite accountable. Developing and maintaining a holistic risk mitigation approach from a cybersecurity perspective is no longer optional. Learning how to define these risks in business terms and tying them to business objectives is paramount.  In this session, we will talk through a case study of a ransomware cyberattack from a business perspective.
