Geoff Hudson-Searle thought leadership discussion on the current state of the cyber risk landscape at the ‘CRMG and Galvanize Cyber Risk Series’: Getting inside the mind of the Board

In today’s uncertain and volatile world, organizational leaders are under pressure to confidently assess and manage risk and secure their organisations against cyber threats. But how well prepared are boards to achieve this?

Unlike other board governance processes that are more mature, boards don’t always feel fully informed about their true cyber risk profiles or equipped to make the right decisions in line with their governance responsibilities.

In this second part of the Cyber Risk Series, we continue our discussion of the current state of cyber risk, but from the viewpoint of the board. We discuss its role in risk management, and what the CISO and IT leaders can do to overcome the lack of risk management oversight.

Meaningful Conversations

Every day we interact with hundreds of people across dozens of platforms, but how can a meaningful conversation help your business?
Your success is determined in large part by your ability to have a conversation. You can be the best at what you do, but if you’re not communicating effectively with clients, staff and the market, then you’re missing opportunities.
There are many different ways to look at communication in the small-business world — from individual formats such as writing and speaking to different contexts such as client communication and employee management.
Each and every day you will be required to flex your communication muscles and interact; a bad conversation could spell disaster for an employee relationship, a customer or your business.
Alternatively, the right words at the right time could propel your business into places you didn’t think possible and can deliver opportunities that were not available before.

Purposeful Discussions

Strategic Partnerships
What do strategic partnerships really mean in today’s business environment?
Strategic partnerships deliver access to new markets or customers, accelerate new product development cycles, and improve a company’s competitive positioning.
They help companies expand their capabilities without the added step of creating those capabilities in-house, increasing business risks by carrying extra costs/assets on the balance sheet.
Companies, therefore, perform more efficiently and adapt more quickly than they would on their own.
