{Webinar} Information Security Basics: Board of Directors Edition

Date: Tuesday, September 19, 2017 
Time: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CT
SBS Presenter: Chad Knutson


Many directors would benefit from additional training on your Information Security Program, cybersecurity threats, and emerging technology risks. Directors are ultimately responsible for the security of customer information, establishing cybersecurity expectations, and providing direction to management. Their responsibility includes approving financial investments into cybersecurity and creating accountability for security operations. Directors need to better understand cybersecurity so that they can make good decisions, allocate the necessary resources, and provide the oversight regulators require.

This discussion reinforces the need for engaged Directors and senior management in understanding their institutions’ risks, monitoring potential threats, establishing a “dynamic control environment,” effectively overseeing third party relationships, and developing/testing plans for business continuity and incident response.

This information will enable you to make a difference at your financial institution by addressing the information security awareness deficiencies and communicate Information Security Program components to directors and senior management.

What you will learn:

  • IT Risk Assessment
  • Policies and Procedures
  • IT Audit
  • Continual Cybersecurity Education
  • Board Reporting Best Practices

Who should attend? Current and prospective board members, senior management, risk managers and IT officers. A background in information technology or information security is not required.

Presented in partnership with TTS
