RSA WEBINAR: SECURITY & RISK – TACKLING DIGITAL RISK TOGETHER; THURS., JULY 11 @ 11:00 am EDT

Managing digital risk requires close collaboration between security and risk management teams. In many organizations, however, this level of collaboration has been difficult to achieve due to the two functions using different tools, a different vocabulary, and in some cases, having different goals and priorities.

It’s possible for security and risk teams to work in lockstep, and during this webinar, we’ll show leaders of these functions several ways to get started. You’ll get:

A sneak preview of our new self-assessment tool, the RSA Digital Risk Index, and we’ll show you how you can use it to spark actionable conversations with your peers in security and risk.

Checklists with steps you can take to mitigate cyber, third-party, cloud and workforce risks.

Best practices we’ve seen our customers use to bring risk and security teams together to tackle digital risk.

If you’re a security leader trying to build bridges with the risk management team or a risk management leader wishing to make inroads with IT security, you’ll come away from this webinar with actions you can take immediately.
