Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015
In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama focused on several new cyber security proposals that call for greater information sharing between the federal government and private companies, and new security initiatives to prevent high-profile hacks. How boards of directors and CXOs can build the proper foundation to address today's information security challenges is the topic of Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015, 2-day seminar expert Edgar Perez will lead in Dubai, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, London and New York City. This is the first seminar targeted at strategic and executive leaders for whom cybersecurity readiness is a relatively new yet critically important area to be intelligently conversant about.

Re: Security C-suite concept
The competition for top cybersecurity talent is sure to be tough - especially when it's no longer enough to just have extensive tech experience. Banks (well, financial services businesses in general) would be smart to start seeking out experts that also have international experience and strong communication skills, two must-haves in today's digital environment.

Security C-suite concept
Very timely update, Matt. The concept of the "security c-suite" should be a wake-up call to many organizations, and I've read elsewhere how the CISO and chief risk officer roles are high-profile and hot today. Of course, many different industries are seeking to cultivate this type of talent, as well, so banks and other financial services companies are likely to find themselves in an intense competition for "the best and the brightest" -- similar to the battle for data/analytics, digital and customer experience expertise.
