Handling data breaches and cybersecurity increasingly involves international issues. Cybersecurity laws are emerging globally, such as the strict new law in China.

Global Cyber Enterprise Risk Management

Appropriately managing cybersecurity on a global basis is a team sport.  In order to appropriately manage these issues, a number of disparate teams must understand a company’s risk posture and tolerance, and be able to work effectively to integrate this information and take appropriate steps.  This session will address how to create and manage a structure that gives your company its best chance of managing cyber ERM.

Information-Sharing with Governments Worldwide

Information sharing is one of the most controversial issues in privacy and security.   While most people recognize the need for information sharing, there are many people who raise concerns about the nature and extent of information sharing on a global basis.  This issue has gotten only more difficult as globalization increases and trans-border data transfers become routine.  This session will focus on the how and why of information sharing, as well as provide key takeaways to help you understand your company’s risks and opportunities.


The Cybersecurity + Risk Summit will be held on Wednesday, April 3, 2019.  The International Privacy+Security Forum will be held on Thursday, April 4, 2019 and Friday, April 5, 2019.  The fee for participating in the Cybersecurity + Risk Summit is separate from the fee to participate in the Forum. You can register for the Cybersecurity + Risk Summit independently from the main International Privacy+Security Forum.
