Managing cyber risk is essential
You do not need need to be a technical expert to discover cybersecurity risk in your respective area of production, transportation, sale or regulation of energy. You do, however, need to ask probing questions to ascertain the maturity level and fundamental challenges in the way the organization understands and manages cybersecurity risk. Ryan Leirvik, CEO of Grim, will discuss three probing questions for discovering fundamental challenges in the way the organization understands and manages cybersecurity risk.
