G100 Leadership in the Digital Age
Governing Digital Risk
Digital security is an enterprise-wide imperative and requires active management by senior executives and oversight from boards of directors. Relentless digital threats, including increased data breaches, service disruption, and property loss and destruction by both criminals and hostile nation-states threaten growth objectives and present challenging strategic and governance questions. Further, fines and litigation from misuse or exposure of private information is on the rise, adding to the reputational and operational impact. Government intervention and regulations continue to evolve, adding complexity.
Developed for senior executives and board directors, Leadership in the Digital Age: Governing Digital Risk supports better alignment of management and board in assessing and prioritizing threats and incident response preparation. Led by renowned digital security practitioners and experts, the program provides participants an enterprise-level approach to digital security focused on a value-at-risk framework.
Created in conjunction with Melissa Hathaway, former cyber security advisor to Presidents Obama and Bush, the program helps companies achieve better alignment between management and board in assessing and prioritizing digital growth investments and risk mitigation.
Participation is capped at 50 senior executives and board members of leading companies. Former participants have included board members, CEOs, CFOs, CISOs, Division Leaders and other executives that own risk management. Meetings are strictly confidential and closed to the press and public.
Leading digital security experts take participants through a custom simulation of a cyber attack, engage participants in proprietary case studies of recent notable digital incidents, and provide tools to better align executive teams with their boards.

Other cyber programs focus on policy and compliance. This program offered an education. It was a huge advantage.

Exclusive member content excerpts
Organizations of all types are experiencing increased data breaches, criminal activity, business disruption, and property destruction. The malicious cyber activities are pervasive, persistent, and pernicious. The risk is real and is driving governments to increase their market interventions, primarily through regulation and law, thus increasing the complexity of compliance for corporations who operate global businesses. Leadership in the Digital Age: Governing Cyber Risk and Driving Business Growth participants receive a toolkit to help prepare to lead in the digital age.
Every company is a digital business. Thinking otherwise is the biggest blind spot in cybersecurity among executives and board directors. By 2020, the digital economy will represent more than a quarter of global GDP and 30 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices will generate $8 trillion in global revenue. Yet cybercrime is growing at 26% year/year and will cost the global economy at least $2.1 trillion in 2019. Corporate digital exposure is increasing as each entity embraces its digital transformation.
Most boards are unaware and unprepared for risks and opportunities emerging from their digital business. Why? Because business models change faster than risk models, creating a disconnect between operations and how boards provide fiduciary oversight and strategic guidance.
Prepare for the worst. Start by building a plan, exercising it, and learning from the training. Develop a crisis management playbook that outlines what needs to get done before, during, and after a crisis. Organizations cannot plan for every potential event but they can anticipate data theft, industrial espionage, disruption of service, and destruction of property.
