CFO role in Cyber Security

The CFO’s responsibility for managing enterprise risk has become more complex with the pervasive cybersecurity threats facing government agencies. CFOs are pressed to take a more active role in cybersecurity, as investment in this area increases, accountability for security remains fragmented, and enterprise risk management includes security as a focus. This session examines the role of the CFO in working with CIOs and CISO’s in this important area.
