Join us on Tuesday, April 28 for our monthly chapter meeting with a special guest speaker:  


Cyber Resilience: “Risk Management” is not enough
by John Eckenrode

We will be hosting the meeting virtually:

Conference Call Information:


Business operations, enterprise risk management, and cybersecurity are critical functions that require integration to effectively understand, communicate, and manage risk. These functions are usually isolated organizationally, resulting in uninformed risk and resource decisions that can reduce resiliency, and impair efficient execution of mission and business objectives. Organizations must institute organizational tools and behaviors to develop consumable cyber-focused risk intelligence and next-generation resilience methods to respond to the challenges posed by the evolving cyber threat landscape.

Come to this interactive session to gain insights on ensuring continued mission fulfillment and added illumination of “shadow resources” that support mission essential functions.
