Essential Eight Cybersecurity from the Server Room to the Boardroom
If you are a member of the board or part of senior management but don’t have deep cybersecurity knowledge, how do you verify that your IT personnel are on top of things? Asking your IT team if they have covered your security won’t get you the answers you need.
If you are an IT manager or administrator, whilst you know you have a great security setup, how do you make it understandable for your senior management and gain their trust that you have things covered?
It is imperative to have a common security language that senior management teams and board members can understand; a clear maturity model that isn’t about tech speak; and a model that is nationally recognised that your organisation can benchmark against.
The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) is the government organisation guiding and publishing such frameworks as Essential Eight. If you want to know how to take the Essential Eight security conversation from the server room to the boardroom and vice versa, then you shouldn’t miss watching this webinar!
