In today’s hyper-digitalized world, cybersecurity risks are a major concern for businesses of all industries. This presents a highly complex problem to businesses, which makes the use of accepted concepts and frameworks in Cyber Security Management essential.

  • Marcel Zumbühl, CISO of Swiss Post, will discuss common cybersecurity frameworks and how they help organizations manage and control these risks.
  • Hans Ulrich Amsler, CISO of Valiant, will then go deeper into how an organization can implement a sensible Cyber Risk Management framework and point to ‘must-haves’ as well as possible stumbling blocks.

By understanding and adopting these frameworks and practices, businesses can effectively mitigate cybersecurity risks and protect their valuable assets. We will also answer these questions:

  • Which frameworks and methods help to collect and aggregate this particular risk into a condensed and actionable control environment.
  • What discussions does the CISO need to have with the executive management and the board of directors? How can they set the right risk appetite for the organization?
