Presenting Security Metrics to the Board - Nancy Edwards (Central Ohio Infosec Summit 2015) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Presenting Security Metrics to the Board
Nancy Edwards

Executive - Session #4 - Nancy Edwards It's Security's turn to present to the board. You have ten minutes. Are you communicating the right message? Will the board care? Security messaging must be meaningful and relevant to both the board and the business—what does success look like? In this participative session you can collaborate with a sitting board member and former CSO to compare notes on effective and failed approaches to communicating security program status and strategies. We will explore shifting perspectives from defensive standpoint (prevention) to responsive (impacts of breaches on production and personnel). This will be a fascinating, impactful discussion you won,t want to miss.

Bio: Nancy Edwards is currently a director for Blackburn Consulting as well as a Board Trustee and Audit Chair of SERS (School Employee Retirement System of Ohio), a $13 billion pension system serving over 200,000 people. Previously, Nancy was Chief Security Officer at State Auto Insurance, supervising information security, privacy, safety, and disaster recovery. Nancy passed her CISSP exam in 2005. Prior to becoming CSO, Nancy wore many hats in insurance from sales to finance, claims, underwriting, operations, and project management. Finally Nancy served as treasurer and board member for Edwards Steel, a steel fabricator specializing in the commercial construction sector. Nancy attended the University of Michigan and earned her BS in statistics from Ohio State. Later she earned her MBA also from Ohio State University. Her broad business background, board participation and direct experience in the CISO "hot seat" give Nancy a unique and compelling perspective on security communications for the board of directors.
