James McLeary Discusses the Important Role of a CISO in Mitigating Cyber Risk

In an interview with Cybercrime Magazine, James McLeary, Associate Managing Director in the Cyber Risk practice of Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps, discussed the importance of a CISO’s role as cyber threats grow more incessant and malicious. A risk management expert, James talked about how a CISO should not only understand how to react during a crisis but also mitigate the damage and maintain corporate security with the help of the C-suite. 

He further discussed the increasing threat to cyber security posed by COVID-19, as employees work remotely, and organizations face new challenges to maintain security. He advised organizations to build their security appetite and develop an overall security framework that includes data privacy and is not limited to just cyber risk. 

James’s article on “Maturing Your Cyber security Program During COVID–19” focused on how organizations can continue their risk assessment and remediation plans, despite the challenging physical limitations. One will also find best practices to ensure your cyber plans continue to receive the necessary focus during this challenging time.
