Deep Dive: Mastering Stakeholder Communication: How to Get Buy-In and Enable Business Success

But, you can have the most efficient and effective program there is and still not have the stakeholder support you need. Being able to effectively communicate risk for your company comes down to one thing: knowing your audience. For the board and C-Suite, they want to know cost and reputation implications. For your team, they need to understand the connection between security and business continuity. And, for the majority of employees, they need something tangible to relate to. 

Join Scotiabank Deputy CISO, Rob Knoblauch, and CyberGRX Director of Solutions Engineering, Caitlin Gruenberg, to learn how to master the message of TPRM success.
