Let folks who’ve seen it tell you what to expect from this one-hour livestream:
• We need more of this out there in the wild. Great stuff!
• Beautifully done. Love the opening point (we see with the brain) and the value of knowing your audience and speaking to them in terms that appeal to their interests. Brava!
• Fantastic presentation!
In 2023, cybersecurity again ranks among the top of all business risks, as it has consistently done for many years.
We don’t expect the relative importance of cybersecurity on your Board or C-suite agenda to hinge on whether cybersecurity ranked #1 or #8 in some study. Our point is that in multiple studies which survey long lists of enormous risks facing our world and your business, cyber ranks predictably in the single digits and often the top 3-5.

• Intangible assets are increasingly important in total company value.
• Intangible assets are in the crosshairs of cyberattacks.
This one-two punch is driving cybersecurity into a more critical role in protecting company value.
Evidence that the game has already changed is showing up in Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A), owner exit strategies, credit ratings, and cyber insurance.

The growing importance of cybersecurity posture in the structure of M&A deals is another way to quantify the benefits of a good stance.
See how we have used this topic to successfully engage senior stakeholders at the level of the Board of Directors and the C-suite of Fortune 500 companies and leveraged it as a component in the overall business case for better cybersecurity.

Just like securing your car, it takes more than one thing to be cybersecure. Problems come from more than one angle and each protection has its strengths but also limitations. We add up the strengths and protect the blind spots by layering the protections.
A diamond only shines to the extent that it’s in the right setting. Getting full leverage from your cybersecurity spending works on the same principle. The optimal setting for cyber technology requires adapting processes and fully engaging your people. This is the shortcoming of every silver bullet scenario.
As the number one most attacked industry, manufacturing is in the cross-hairs of cybercrime. At the same time manufacturing has less visibility into supply chain tiers than other verticals. This combination of factors amplifies the potential blast radius for damage.
Cyber Insurance offers useful insights to quantify cyber risk and make it real for business owners, CxOs and board members of public companies.

Securing your crown jewel assets, one household at a time.
Over 90% of most companies’ value now comes from intangible assets. In addition to Intellectual Property (IP), brand reputation, competitive advantage, supplier network, employee retention, and customer loyalty are measurably affected by cyberattacks. Research shows some of the most damaging losses coming from trusted insiders with malicious intent, also called Insider Threat.
The biggest gains come from proactive attention to Insider Threat, that is, don’t chase after the horse that’s gotten away, keep it from leaving the stable.
Threat actors are increasingly exploiting the path of least resistance in the supply chain to attack their real targets. While more large companies have built a reasonable cybersecurity posture, malicious actors still find easy ingress through abundant open doors in smaller suppliers.
Supply chain attacks have skyrocketed to the point where targeted companies are motivated to manage their own risk by managing the risk hiding in their supply chain.
