Nichols College Cybersecurity Webinar: The Management/Cybersecurity Divide


One of the biggest challenges in network security is managing the 'silo-mentality' between management and security professionals. If both sides understood each other's requirements, the risk of ransomware and other cyber-attacks would be dramatically reduced. Join Moderator Dr. Allison McDowell-Smith and our all-star panel to discuss the technology, market, and business concerns that create risk through lack of alignment, and put us on a course to pursue a common language that promotes cybersecurity. Whether you deal with security at arm’s length from departments like marketing, finance, or legal, or are a long-time IT security expert, we will explore how to spark dialog to ensure your whole institution can effectively align over appropriate risk mitigation strategies. It’s time we unify public, private, and government sectors to reverse the asymmetry in cyber conflict.
