RANE Insights: Cybersecurity and Resiliency for Leaders

But too often leadership may treat cybersecurity as a box to be checked rather than an ongoing situation that needs to be constantly monitored.

That’s why RANE and Nasdaq Governance Solutions are co-hosting a Virtual Cyber Summit for Business Leaders on December 8. In today’s podcast, host and RANE Founder, David Lawrence, previews the cyber summit with a conversation about what leaders should be focusing on and who they should be inviting to advise their companies on cybersecurity best practices.Denny Watson is Executive Director at RANE’s RiskDesk and Carmen Medina is the owner of Media Analytics, Inc., providing bespoke analytic services on national security issues, cognitive diversity, global trends, intrapreneurship, and thinking ahead.
