Corporate Directors to Convene in Geneva for World's First-Ever Global Cyber Forum
NACD to Host Global Boardroom and Cybersecurity Leaders to Elevate Cyber-Risk Oversight Practices
WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), the authority on boardroom practices representing more than 18,000 corporate board members, today announced its 2018 Global Cyber Forum, which will be held April 17-18 in Geneva, Switzerland. This event recognizes the global nature of cyber threats and gives international scope to NACD's efforts to drive board members' greater understanding of, and role in, cybersecurity oversight.
An elite group of nonexecutive directors (NEDs) of multinational corporations, C-suite and managing-director-level executives, cybersecurity experts, global cybersecurity policy and law enforcement officials, and other thought leaders will attend the forum. Participants will examine leading board-level cyber-risk oversight practices and explore key themes that include cross-border law enforcement, the shifting global regulatory landscape, the impact of emerging technologies on cybersecurity, and leading practices in cyber hygiene. The forum will engage attendees in a cyberbreach simulation for interactive learning.
"As new threats arise amid increased global integration and connectivity, corporate boards need to be well-versed in their companies' vulnerabilities in order to be prepared in the event of a cyberbreach," said NACD CEO Peter Gleason. "Our primary goal is to provide NEDs and company leaders with practical information they can take back to the boardroom."
