Risk Conversation at Board level: 2nd webinar with ecoDa and AIG

The good management of data is now an essential part of the business model of many organisations. But with new dependencies linked to the increased use of external hosting, collection, treatment and transfer of data, it is also posing heavy challenges legal, IT and strategic issues.

If it is no longer a pure IT or legal issues; who is required to take the strategic decisions to allocate the right resources (staff and budget)? What role for the Board?

The two parts of the webinars are:

Webinar PART I Data Protection – how to adapt the risk governance to the changing regulatory landscape for personal data (Data Protection Officer, breach notifications, sanctions, hosting, transfer and treatment of personal data)?

Webinar PART II Cyber security – managing the consequences. How to identify, assess and mitigate the cyber risks? What should be the level of awareness of the Board? The Insurance part: the US example led by the existing regulations (mandatory breach and IT incident notification…)

Should data protection be higher on the Board agenda?

How the Board members should get the right information on the specific data risks of their organisation to be in a deciding position?

Who will be the interface between the practical concerns and the need for strategic decisions?
Is there a role for the risk manager as the instrument to collect, consolidate and analyse the relevant information related to the data protection and the cybersecurity of the organization?
