Technology Leadership Series
Register today to join us on Thursday, May 20 at 5:00 PM for an Executive Guide to Building a Culture of Cybersecurity: Research from MIT’s Sloan School featuring Dr. Keri Pearlson, executive director of the research consortium Cybersecurity at MIT Sloan (CAMS).
The topic of building a culture of cybersecurity continues to be very important, if not critical, for CIOs, CISOs and many C-level leaders. We continue to see breach after breach, with many creating headlines about the latest human error that opened up an exploited vulnerability. Leaders are still struggling with how to keep their organization secure and managers need practical solutions for dealing with the human side of cybersecurity. In this session, Dr. Pearlson will share her work with MIT Sloan School’s research group, discuss some of the current ways malicious actors are trying to steal money and company data and infiltrate our systems, and actions you can take to change behaviors of those around you.
