Don’t take me seriously.

Lessons on translating cyber risks into business risks.
Your business leaders are tuned into cybersecurity risks like never before… but they also look at you with blank faces the second you say “This has a CVSS of 10! We don’t have an SBOM! Or this software was EOL 5 years ago!”  In this 25 minute talk, We will take a look at how business leaders make risk decisions, and why your approach may be leading to you “not being taken seriously”.  I will use some humor and share my own failures in communicating risks in hopes of improving your chances of imparting the actual risk in context with your companies & their missions.
