Building a Cyber Savvy Board

Cyber security continues to hit the headlines across the globe, affecting a range of organizations. The number of breaches reported and their significance keeps growing. From Equifax to Deloitte, no organization seems to be immune. It seems that the reality we need to face is that you either have been breached or you are waiting for a breach. C-suite executives seem to bear the brunt of the responsibility for major breaches, and in some cases, this costs them their jobs. However, there is an increasing amount of attention being placed on the role of the board. What should it be and how can you ensure that boards of directors are able to effectively carry out their responsibilities with regards to cyber security?

Not If but When: Preparing for Incidents with Cyber Breach Coaching

Communicating Cyber Security to the Board of Directors

It is easy to find examples of data breaches, ransomware, and online fraud across business sectors. From Target to Equifax to MacEwan University, cyber vulnerabilities have been exploited to significant financial and reputational loss. It is essential that boards of directors are informed and engaged on cyber security to protect their business interests, and yet effective communication between practitioners and boards has emerged as a key challenge to improving information risk management. What are the potential implications of poor communication between cyber security practitioners and the board of directors, and how might these challenges be overcome? This webinar follows an executive meeting of the Conference Board of Canada’s Cyber Security Centre discussed improving board engagement and performance in cyber security. During this discussion, the communication challenges between the IT sector and the executive sector was identified as one area needing improvement to build board capacity concerning cyber security.

Future Challenges for Emergency Management

The US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has stated that “The World is changing in ways that can have major effects on the emergency management community.” Our environment is evolving at a rapid pace and the emergencies that we are encountering are evolving just as quickly in terms of scope and complexity. If we are to be resilient to the evolving emergency management challenges of the future, we need to build an understanding of what might be changing, as well as the skills and resources we will need to effectively cope with these challenges.

Harnessing the Power of Volunteers in Emergencies

There are generally two types of volunteers: affiliated and unaffiliated. Engaged citizens and spontaneous volunteers. Both have traditionally been neglected but both can be tremendously helpful, especially during disaster situations. Every community's volunteers and volunteer organizations, including Volunteer Corps and Citizen Emergency Response Teams, have essential local knowledge, not to mention proximity. And when a community is affected, social media tends to draw external (and virtual) spontaneous volunteers, dispersed and disparately-skilled people who want to contribute. In both cases, the key is to provide them tools to self-organize around actually-useful, non make-work tasks; tasks that take advantage of the skills and assets on-hand.

Emergency Response to Terrorism Events: Six Key Insights

From Barcelona and London to Ottawa ON, terrorist attacks continue to make headlines all over the globe. These events differ in some ways from traditional emergencies, requiring responses that are complex, quick, and dynamic, all within a crowded stakeholder space. How prepared is Canada and its citizens to deal with emergencies resulting from terrorism events? What can we learn from recent events across the world that will help us to be better prepared to deal with an attack on home soil? In February 2017, The Conference Board of Canada’s Centre for National Security and Council on Emergency Management held a joint meeting that brought together senior members of local, federal, and international law enforcement, and emergency response officials to discuss recent terrorist attacks, trends in emergency preparedness, and ways to move forward.

Cybersecurity and Legal Compliance – How to Strike a Balance

Organizations operating in the critical infrastructure space struggle to strike a balance between the need to dedicate the necessary resources to be compliant with regulations and responding to cyber attacks in real time. Given the ongoing expectation of cybersecurity-related compliance and the additional need to respond to scrutiny of cyber incident response readiness, organizations need to adopt a multidisciplinary approach that incorporates risk management, cybersecurity, and legal expertise. While one size does not fit all, this webinar will touch on four key steps that organizations can take to effectively respond to the dual requirement of compliance and overall cyber readiness.

Western Foreign Fighters: The Threat To Homeland and International Security

Scarcely a day goes by without news of yet another terrorist attack somewhere in the world. While most of these attacks occur in Asia and Africa, Western nations have been rocked as well: think Paris, Brussels, Orlando, Nice, Berlin, and Stockholm. Some of these attacks have been executed by individuals who have returned from fighting abroad with terrorist groups like Islamic State. More incidents are probable as reports indicate that more than 3,000 such individuals have performed jihad in Iraq and Syria alone. How can we stop these attacks from taking place? Who is best placed to do so? What can we do about those who return to our lands battle hardened and perhaps intent on carrying out mayhem? Join us for a frank discussion on these issues with former CSIS strategic analyst Phil Gurski. In his new book, “Western Foreign Fighters: the threat to homeland and international security”, Phil looks at why Canadians and other Westerners join terrorist groups like IS and what threat they pose to our security. Phil will discuss incidents in other countries and the likelihood we will see attacks in Canada, as well as present his latest research findings on how we may be able to manage these threats.

Ensuring Safety and Improving Collaboration During Large Events

Ensuring the safety of all during large planned events is a priority for all event organizers and government officials. When coordinating and managing events such as parades, festivals, and sporting events, situational awareness and the ability to make appropriate decisions that involve multiple parties are critical. So, what can governments and private corporations do to better prepare for and respond to emergency incidents at large events to ensure the safety of citizens, staff, and infrastructure?
