posted 14 Mar 2017, 20:38 by Mukesh Kesharwani   [ updated 14 Mar 2017, 23:50 ]
With growing media attention to security breaches and growing compliance requirements, it is not difficult to get security on the board agenda or on the senior leadership meetings. However, is security on the agenda for the right reasons and in the right way? Do business executives perceive security as a business enabler, or just a compliance burden / cost of doing business?  
Paras Shah will discuss his practical experiences (both successful and unsuccessful)  while elevating security as a business issue, including:
The required shift in thinking.
Popular theories and practices for security governance and risk management.
the role of organisational change enablement and using it to your advantage.
Contemporary techniques and tools that might help.
