Long gone are the days when a single individual or team – whether IT not – would oversee cyber security at an enterprise. Savvy business leaders know that security is the responsibility of everyone, from the entry-level staffer on up to the board, and that a knowledgeable and prepared executive team can mean the difference between a minor incident and a major breach.
One of the most important decision-makers when it comes to cyber security is the General Counsel (GC). No one knows this better than Alexa King, EVP and General Counsel at FireEye. In this video, Alexa sits down with Karen Kukoda, FireEye Senior Director of Strategic Alliances, to discuss not only the role the GC plays in cyber security, but also the duties of the board of directors in overseeing cyber security.
