Taking a Holistic Approach to Addressing Cyber Risk—Leadership and Collaboration Strategies

Event Date / Time: 09th April 2019 – 5:30pm to 8:00pm
Venue: EY Melbourne Office – 8 Exhibition St Melbourne VIC 3000


In the last few years, cyber security has moved from the server room to the boardroom.  In an interconnected global economy, organisations must manage their cyber risk as an integrated entity and must often collaborate with constituencies outside their companies (e.g., government, including law enforcement and the military; professional associations such as ISACs/ISAOs; and others).


Join us on April 9th to hear Christina Ayiotis discuss strategies to foster productive collaboration and how to create opportunities to be the leader your organisation needs.
