Risk Management & Governance

Four sessions, one goal: improving risk management.

This free virtual seminar moderated by Consultant and Author, John Elliott, consists of four sessions which take a deep dive into cybermaturity concepts, building stronger cybersecurity bonds, measuring risk with an open, community risk model, and managing extreme cyber loss.

The four sessions are split into two parts. Each part is approximately one hour followed by 20–25 minutes of Q&A with the speakers.

PART 1: Are We Secure? Yes, If Our Controls Are Working.

IS & Compliance: Building Bonds for Stronger Cybersecurity

Cybermaturity: Bringing Maturity into Cybersecurity
