  Perspectives from Microsoft: An Overview of the Cybersecurity Landscape
Regulatory changes globally will raise the profile of cybersecurity to board members and senior leadership teams. You need to communicate strategy and risk in a way they understand. Cyber should also form part of disaster recovery and business continuity planning. If disaster strikes, it’s important to communicate quickly and clearly to avoid reputational damage. You will be judged and remembered on how you respond. This session outlines Microsoft's perspective, what they are hearing from their customers and how the Microsoft/Veritas partnership best protects organizations from these threats.
