This session tackles the often-overlooked challenge of aligning management, leadership, and HR with the non-negotiable demands of modern cybersecurity. We explore effective strategies for presenting compelling arguments that transcend the common misconceptions of security as a hindrance to convenience. By delving into real-world examples, attendees will learn how to foster a culture that values security as a foundational principle, including how to engage non-technical stakeholders in meaningful discussions about risk management, compliance, and the potential impacts of security breaches on the organization’s bottom line. Emphasizing communication, education, and strategic negotiation, this session equips participants with the tools needed to turn skepticism into support, paving the way for the successful implementation of advanced security measures. Join us to transform the security conversation within your organization, ensuring that your digital defenses are not just tolerated, but actively championed by all levels of leadership.

You will learn:

  • Tools needed to turn skepticism into support
