The Ostrich Effect

Bryce Austin

The Ostrich effect: How proper communication with the C-Suite will lead to good decisions around technology and cybersecurity.

In the wake of well publicized security breaches that disrupted business in some of the world’s largest companies, technology leaders are in need of an “executive presence” in the boardroom more than ever. How do we talk about technical issues to non-technical executives? How do we secure the funding we need to keep our companies safe? This presentation will focus on ideas to engage the hearts and minds of non-technical executives on how to keep the bad guys out and not let your company be the next headline about a cybersecurity incident.
