One of the greatest challenges in managing —or just being a part of— a governance, risk, compliance, and cybersecurity program has been communication and collaboration between corporate compliance, legal, HR and information security departments. This presentation, intended for information security practitioners, and given by an instructor who is both information security practitioner and attorney, will call attention the most common areas of overlap and misunderstandings, and identify opportunities for collaboration or deference, and effective techniques for coaching, and assertiveness.
Key learning points will include:
- Identify boundaries and overlap of information security and legal disciplines
- Employ effective techniques for collaborating with, deferring to, or educating corporate attorneys
- Develop a culture of candor and collaboration between information security and corporate legal departments
