CEO Roundtable: Cyber Security

February 23, 2022

8:00-9:00 AM PT

The threat is real — and growing. Virtually every company experiences cybersecurity incidents every day; the key difference is which know it…and know how to respond. Whether from data breaches and ransomware or threats from inside the firm, cybersecurity is no longer optional for CEOs and Boards to manage. So how can high-level executives manage this emerging era? How should CEOs best get a handle on the risk, right-size investments in defense, and look around corners of threats to the enterprise? Few can speak more authoritatively to these questions than Dr. R. David Edelman, who served in the Bush and Obama Administrations, rising to become the youngest-ever Director named to the U.S. National Security Council. Later, as Special Assistant to the President, he led the White House economic team's work on technology, media, and telecom policy. Today he teaches at MIT, is a counselor to CEOs, as well as a frequent keynote speaker on cybersecurity, geopolitics, and the future of technology."
