With few exceptions, executive management doesn't care about security. They care about risk. In this session, Jack will discuss the differences and share his experiences in taking the information security program at a Fortune 100 financial services company from a security focus to one of risk management. This presentation will cover why the change took place, how it took place (what worked and what didn't), and the practical benefits that resulted.
