Morning Keynote – The Cost of Doing Business Securely: Cybersecurity as an Integral Part of Organizational Strategy
Presented by: John Rogers, Sage Data Security
In this keynote, John Rogers will discuss the likelihood and cost of a data breach, and the elements of a cost-effective well-designed cybersecurity program that integrates with business strategy to support strategic goals. John will also cover the current Internet environment, with special focus on the power inherent to all workforce members to defend against common attacks with very simple tools and knowledge.
Lunch Keynote – Somewhere Over the Rainbow: Nonprofit Boards and Risk Oversight
Presented by: Melanie Lockwood Herman, Nonprofit Risk Management Center
Nonprofit boards are becoming more and more interested in proactively and vigilantly discharging their duty of risk oversight. This keynote will benefit CEOs, CFOs and board members who are new to risk management and risk oversight, as well as veteran leaders who want to encourage their peers to join them on a journey down the yellow brick road of risk oversight. We’ll analyze Wizard of Oz characters like the Lion, the Tin Man, and the Scarecrow to better understand the array of nonprofit board member attitudes and approaches toward risk and risk oversight. By the end of this session, you’ll be ready to inspire your board (or your fellow board members) to leave Munchkinland and start a risk oversight journey to the Emerald City.
