Creating a Cybersecurity Strategy

Wednesday, October 31 | 1:30PM–2:15PM MT | Mile High Ballroom 2B/3B, Ballroom Level
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
A cybersecurity strategy requires thinking differently from IT and business because it is adversarial, asymmetric, and reactive. A security strategy must complement the institutional and IT strategies but has very different goals. We will cover how to create an effective cybersecurity strategy as well why the CISO should not report to the CIO.

Outcomes: Understand what strategy is and why it is important * Analyze your internal and external environment and then develop a realistic cybersecurity strategy * Communicate your strategy to various stakeholders
