Communicating cyber risk
May 31, 2023
Webinar recording: Communicating cyber risk to the board
In this webinar, speakers from Microsoft, Royal Mail & Secure Impact discussed top tips and strategies for discussing cyber risk with your key stakeholders.

What did we discuss? 

As a security leader, you will likely be required to present to a wide range of stakeholders, who often don’t have a technical background, to achieve buy-in and successfully deliver your security programme. Presenting cyber risk is a complex but unavoidable topic for the board, especially as cyber-attacks increase year-on-year, and it is understood that no business is safe from a potential breach. So how much information does the board need to know? And what are some effective strategies for communicating it effectively? 

Key discussion points  

  • What is the role of the board in cyber risk?
  • What information do you need to be communicating (and what not to)?
  • Strategies for effective communications & achieving your goals.
  • Final top tips from the panel.
