Setting Common Language when Talking to Leadership about IT Risks
Release Date: 09/19/2021
To be successful in presenting IT security to senior leadership, it's important it is done in a way that they can ingest, process, and understand; because ultimately, IT risk management decisions are business decisions, not technical decisions.
If one is not successful getting buy-in from senior leadership, it is likely not due to a poor plan, but not explaining in terms, concepts, and approaches that resonate with leadership.
This session will discuss approaches for use to present to individual business decision-makers, understanding that each has his/her own goals, incentives, currency, and biases. It will talk about 3 simple concepts to be defined and agreed on by senior leadership to move forward: what does success look like?; what does failure look like?; How do we measure these?
This session will be very conversational and interactive; so bring questions!
