Cybersecurity Risk Management: A Conversation with John Kindervag on Zero Trust Strategy and Cyber Threats
Cybersecurity risk is evolving at a rapid rate, and it’s more complex than ever. Threat actors are constantly changing their attacks and devising new schemes to extort companies of ransoms that are reaching millions of dollars. Recent cyberattacks have shown that not only do they affect corporate data, intellectual property and systems but they can also directly impact physical plants and operations. As a result, cybersecurity is becoming a critical risk for many companies and requires attention from the general counsel, others in the C-suite and the Board.

To effectively lead corporations in responding to cybersecurity risk, executives require a fundamental understanding of cybersecurity, including cybersecurity strategy.

McDermott Will & Emery is hosting a webinar with our friends at ON2IT to discuss cybersecurity risk and what has become the prevailing cybersecurity strategy known as “Zero Trust.” The webinar will be a fireside chat between Todd McClelland, leader of McDermott’s Global Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice Group, and John Kindervag, the Senior Vice President of Cybersecurity Strategy and Group Fellow at ON2IT. John is also the inventor and pioneer of Zero Trust strategy.

Zero Trust is a strategy for protecting corporate data and assets and is based on a concept that corporate networks should not automatically trust anything inside or outside its perimeter. This strategy is regarded by many industry experts as one of the best ways to stop data breaches and is embraced by many Fortune 500 companies.

During the webinar, Todd and John will answer the following:
• What does cybersecurity risk look like to most companies?
• How do cybersecurity incidents affect companies from a legal and operational perspective?
• Why is it important for companies to have a cybersecurity strategy?
• How do Zero Trust concepts play into executive risk management oversight?
