Cybersecurity Through A Risk Management, Compliance, And Legal Lens

October 12, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free – $100.00

October 12 2023 Monthly Meeting

Information Security is now one of the most significant risk areas for any business. Thus, understanding, addressing, and managing that risk needs to be a top priority – to protect company information, assets, technology, systems, and networks.

Most federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and regulators are now hyper-focused on Information Security — not just on apprehending cybercriminals and reactively addressing cybercrime after it occurs; but also, proactively preventing it.

Today, most enforcement and regulatory agencies expect businesses to have robust cybersecurity compliance programs built around identifying and managing their most significant cyber risks. Many also require companies to have robust risk-based information security programs, as pre-requisites to conducting business. This also extends to third-party contractors and business partners who are now expected and contractually required to have robust risk-based information security compliance programs.

The best way to prevent this Parade of Horribles is for IT and Risk Management/Compliance/Legal to work together in a collaborative partnership – transcending traditional corporate silos and assumptions regarding what IT, Compliance, Legal, and Risk Management are “supposed” to do.

On Octobert 12 2023, Alexandra Rebay, former Global Chief Compliance Officer for Verizon Communications will lead a discussion on how to form this collaborative partnership. When done right, effective proactive information security compliance and risk management can be leveraged as a competitive advantage.


About Our Presenter:

Alexandra Rebay was the Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, and Global Chief Compliance Officer for Verizon Communications, and also held a variety of other senior executive leadership roles at Verizon and its predecessor company, GTE Corporation, over almost 30 years. Since retiring from Verizon on the eve of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ms. Rebay has brought her expertise in compliance, risk management, litigation, and crisis management to the not-for-profit arena, guiding the Greater Somerset County YMCA, whose Board Audit & Risk Management Committee she chairs, through the myriad novel operational issues – including cybersecurity challenges – presented by the global pandemic and its aftermath.

Before her career in the private sector, Ms. Rebay served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York, prosecuting computer crime, securities fraud, corruption, narcotics, and terrorism cases.
