{Hacker Hour} Taking Cybersecurity From the Basement to the Boardroom

{Hacker Hour} Taking Cybersecurity From the Basement to the Boardroom

Regulators have made it clear that cybersecurity risk management and oversight is ultimately the responsibility of the Board of Directors. In theory, it makes sense for the board to be interested and engaged in what is going on in cybersecurity, however, that is not the case in some situations. 

For this Hacker Hour, we went straight to the source. We asked a selection of past Hacker Hour attendees to share the most common issues they struggle with when communicating cybersecurity needs to their Board. The responses fell into three main categories: 

  • Frequency of FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment completion and utilization of risk assessment data. 
  • Information that should be provided to the Board on a consistent basis. 
  • Tips for engaging and educating the Board. 

Join this month's Hacker Hour as we discuss how to boost cybersecurity from its hiding spot in the basement to a consistent topic in the boardroom.

Hacker Hour webinars are a series of free webinars hosted by SBS CyberSecurity. Unlike paid webinars, Hacker Hours are aimed to meet on a monthly basis to discuss cybersecurity issues and trends in an open format. Attendees are encouraged to join the conversation and get their questions answered. SBS will also offer products and services to help financial institutions with these specific issues.
