 A Business Perspective on Cybersecurity

A Presentation by James R. Elste

Cybersecurity is a critical business issue as illustrated in a recent survey of Board of Directors and C-suite executives. What executives are beginning to realize is, they need to understand and approach cybersecurity as an enterprise wide risk management issue, not just an IT issue.

This presentation, which is open to all majors, will focus on the business perspective and management issues created by cybersecurity risk. We will explore the cybersecurity landscape, leading management practices, and strategies to address these new business realities. We will also highlight the professional opportunities in cybersecurity for business majors.

Wednesday September 23rd, 2015 at 4:00 pm in the Joe Crowley Student Union JCSU Room 402
