  • Summary
  • Agenda
BDO USA, LLP invites you and your colleagues to a complimentary program during Cybersecurity Awareness month.

Most directors have probably given thought to the kinds of cybersecurity issues that face their organizations.  Yet, recent studies – and a number of widely-publicized data breaches – point to a widespread need to increase directors’ level of awareness and sophistication on cybersecurity, cyber risk and related compliance issues.  Join us for an energized discussion on the current state of board cybersecurity awareness, readiness, and requirements. Our event will address emerging topics and what directors should be doing to protect and minimize exposure for their organizations and themselves.

Event Learning Objectives:
  • Identify basic elements of sound governance practices and tools to employ with respect to cybersecurity
  • Compare recent findings on directors’ level of awareness of cybersecurity issues, and their readiness to manage cyber risk
  • Recognize key director liability and certification requirements posed by the proposed New York Department of Financial Services cybersecurity regulation
  • Be armed with key questions to ask fellow board members and management teams to assess cybersecurity preparedness
