Cybersecurity: At Greater Risk Than Ever Before

The importance of cybersecurity risk management for organizations is being amplified by a stunning tally of highly disruptive and expensive breaches, whether through criminal deployment of ransomware, nation-state actors, hacktivists or insider threat. The pandemic and the subsequent work-from-home environment around the globe has further widened the attack surface, providing a fertile playground for attackers. Cybersecurity must be front-and-center on the agenda for all organizations, not just critical infrastructure. However, many companies are grappling with how to prioritize cybersecurity risk mitigations in the face of a constantly morphing set of threat actors and tactics. Conrad Prince, former Director General for Operations and deputy head of the UK Government’s signals intelligence and cyber security agency (GCHQ), and Rhea Siers, Teneo Senior Advisor and former US National Security Agency’s Deputy Associate Director for Cybersecurity Policy, join Kevin Kajiwara, Co-President of Political Risk Advisory, for an engaging discussion on the current and evolving state of global cybersecurity risk and the role of the private sector in combating these threats to business operations.
