Cyber threats are a high priority on all board risk radars today. But what actually happens if your organisation is in the firing line? And how can the communication function contribute to best practice cyber risk management?

This session is for senior leaders in consultancies who are interested in managing their own business risks, and/or leaders of communications functions in organisations that need to prepare for cyber risk.
