The ISACA Melbourne Chapter invites you to join us for this special session, in which Brigadier General (Retired) Greg Touhill, former US Chief Information Security Officer, will be the special guest speaker.

In this session, Greg will share experience and insights into the following:

  • Why do security risk practitioners struggle to effectively communicate cyber risks to their boards and executives?
  • Is it possible to effectively quantify the impact of cyber risks?
  • What should organisations be doing to increase resilience with respect to cyber security?
  • What should a leader focus on to sustain the right culture?

“It is rare we get the opportunity to hear from someone with Greg’s depth of first-hand experience in the world’s most serious cyber security threats. An event not to miss.”

There will be the opportunity for guests to ask Greg questions at the conclusion of the session.
