Panel discussion

“Beyond the Checkbox: Driving real value in cyber security and privacy management”

Hosted by: Alan Calder, Founder and Executive Chairman, IT Governance
Panellists: James Pickard, Saagar Shah, Gary Baxter and Adam Romain

Duration: 45 minutes

In today’s rapidly evolving cyber-threat landscape, meeting the minimum compliance requirements is no longer sufficient. Organisations need to adopt a more holistic approach to cyber security and risk management to protect their assets and deliver value to their clients. This panel discussion will explore the critical importance of moving beyond checkbox compliance to embrace more comprehensive risk management strategies that align with business goals and customer needs.

We will discuss how under-scoping projects can lead to vulnerabilities, and the role of advanced cyber security frameworks and services in mitigating these risks. Our products serve as key enablers in this transformation, providing the tools and insights needed to drive proactive risk management and ensure a high level of security and compliance.

There will be a Q&A for an opportunity to speak to our experts.
