The Pell Center panel discussion on “Connecting the Boardroom to the Server Room – Current Issues and Practical Guidance” will take place next Wednesday, October 11th, from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. The event will be preceded by a networking breakfast at 8:30 a.m. (The event was rescheduled from September 20th.)
This event, part of the ongoing Rhode Island Corporate Cybersecurity Initiative (RICCI), will include a seminar and a panel discussion led by IBM industry leader, Mr. David Jarvis, and will focus on the expanding array of responsibilities that security leaders, C-suites, and boards will have to take on in an age of persistent cyber threat.
David will discuss current trends and threats in cyberspace and the challenges and emerging security issues that senior leaders are struggling with. The seminar will also address some of the lessons-learned from the Cybersecurity and Healthcare Sector tabletop exercise hosted by the Pell Center in May 2017, and explore innovative approaches to improving cybersecurity best practice and developing strong relations between boards of directors and security leaders.
The seminar will be followed by a moderated conversation with senior leaders from Lifespan on how good internal relationships can enable organizations to better prevent, respond to, and recover from incidents, and help mitigate cyber-risks.
