Companies are investing greater resources each year to address information security risks. Despite the recognition that information security programs should be risk-based, most companies have not developed robust, repeatable risk-assessment processes.

Effective risk assessments have become a key issue for regulators in various industries. Far from just another regulatory requirement, cyber risk assessments help information security leaders to engage senior management in understanding and managing key risks while bridging the gap between security and technical teams. Risk assessments also facilitate board of director and executive management leadership in supporting necessary investment in and oversight of the most critical areas.

With ever-increasing cyber risk and greater regulatory supervision and scrutiny, the ability to translate complex technical issues into easily understood cyber risk challenges is even more critical. Panelists will discuss risk-assessment tools and processes with a focus on risks for regulated industries, including gaming and public utilities.
