A recap and recording of this event is available here.

On Monday, January 30, the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity will kick off its CyberMētis Speaker Series with a seminar featuring Davis Hake, Co-Founder and Vice President of Communications at Resilience, a cyber insurance company.

A board member of a Fortune 100 company recently said, “The future CISO needs to be a financially-minded business leader who is the principal cyber risk advisor to the CEO and Board.” In this talk, Hake will share his perspective on the evolving role of digital risk in companies and which areas the security community needs to pay more attention to. Discussion topics will include: budgeting to stop cyber attacks while also growing company revenue; cybersecurity solutions that enable vs block business priorities; how much cyber insurance and risk transfer a company should have; how cybersecurity leaders balance responsibilities to their users vs their companies; and what Boards of Directors are looking for in the talent pipeline.

This seminar series is open to UC Berkeley graduate and undergraduate students, researchers, and faculty members only. Light refreshments will be provided.
