Cybersecurity is now well understood to be a high-level governance issue. Boards of Directors have oversight responsibility for cybersecurity risks faced by the companies they supervise. In addition, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has taken an active role in recent years regulating businesses in connection with cyber risks and incidents, bringing significant and costly enforcement actions where companies suffer cybersecurity-related issues. Companies also need to understand the myriad security laws and industry standards in the U.S. and the rapidly changing legal landscape.

She will explain today’s legal environment and consider future trends. Understanding these issues will assist S4 attendees in addressing cybersecurity risks with their c-suites.
