When organizations and executives think about cyber security, most think only about the need to install the latest technology to protect against breaches or, that since they aren’t in the IT department, they don’t have a significant role. While technology is important, an organization's policies and employee’s security awareness are crucial to keeping data secure. Managing an organization's risk of a breach can be overwhelming for managers and executives, particularly if they don’t have a well-defined approach. However, by examining and understanding the "big picture” of cybersecurity, organizations across any industry are able to effectively assess their unique needs and develop an appropriate roadmap and plan of action. This seminar will discuss a strategic approach to cybersecurity that takes technical and nontechnical components into account. Case studies of organizations across a diverse set of industries will be presented to apply the principles learned to real world situations.
