Primary tabs

Speaker: JEFFREY WHEATMAN, SVP, Cyber Risk Evangelist, Black Kite
Topic: Communicating Cybersecurity and IT Risk Issues to Non-IT Audiences
Synopsis: We all think that we are brilliant at communicating with business stakeholders. But in reality this doesn’t always hold true when communicating with less technical audiences. This presentation will explore proven ways to get the message out. Attendees will learn:
• common mistakes made by IT and security leaders when communicating with their less technical audiences
• tips for creating messages that will resonate with business colleagues and leaders
• how we can deliver the message clearly, concisely, effectively and without boring our audience to tears.

In his current capacity as SVP, Cyber Risk Evangelist at Black Kite, Jeffrey has been tasked with raising awareness of the enterprise-wide risk impacts of third party risk, both in the digital and traditional supply chain and supporting the strategic vision of the executive leadership team and investors.
