When even the White House can be hacked, it isn't a big stretch for corporate leaders and directors to start to question how secure your company's IT infrastructure and data are. Added to the increasing threat from external sources is the added reputational risk that corporations and their senior executives face, from customers, regulators and media, who increasingly see these breaches as failures of management and the board to effectively manage their cyber risk.

This threat is an opportunity for corporate security executives to demonstrate their worth to the corporation and to see the profile and prestige of this role increase. But in order to make the most of this opportunity, corporate security officers need to be confident not only in their assessment and risk management approaches, they must also actively engage other senior executives and the board to ensure that everyone is onside with the cyber threat management plan. A failure to have a comprehensive approach to managing cyber risk will undermine a company's ability to manage the threats.

Cyber Threats Need Coordination: How Cyber Security Can Only Be Addressed Comprehensively with Tony Power, Senior Director, Corporate Security at Emera Inc. will showcase how he worked with Emera's executive team and board of directors to develop a comprehensive approach to managing cyber risk.
