How to effectively manage cyber risks inalienable to digital transformation?

As they embrace digital transformation, organizations are confronted with a challenge: how to effectively manage the cyber risks that are a seemingly inalienable part of everything digital? How to organize for this new task? What structures to put in place? What business outcomes to expect?

With nearly 20 years of cyber management experience, Jan De Blauwe will recommend a number of pragmatic approaches to these questions; and discuss opportunities for value creation and maturity acceleration through closer cooperation within and across sectors.
