    Classroom Cyber Risk Discussion in the Boardroom

    Cyber risk has been a perennial topic of discussion in the boardroom; there is a plethora of director education offerings and in boardroom exercises, and yet, the headlines reveal some companies are still ill-prepared to address the issues which arise in connection with cyber breaches. Join us to learn from our panel of experts and directors about the latest leading practices for large and small companies and exchange perspectives with your director peers during a "post-breach" interactive simulation.

    Panelists

    Chris Inglis, Director, Huntington Bancshares, FedEx and KEYW
    Charlie Jacco, Principal, KPMG LLP, Cyber Security Services, US Financial Services Industry Lead

    Classroom The Importance of Board Assessments: What's Happening and What We Have Learned

    More than twelve years ago the New York Stock Exchange ruled that Boards of Directors should assess themselves annually to help improve their performance and to record the results in the proxy statement. This was a well-intentioned ruling and one which, to the best of our knowledge, has not harmed any company or Board of Directors. To the contrary, the results of this practice have proven how successful it is when properly conducted; but what if it is not? What is actually happening? Why are some Boards successful and others not? What criteria can be used to measure a Board's progress?

    NACD New York has assembled some of the best practitioners in the Board Space. They will share their experiences and their observations of what works, what needs to change and what they believe the best practices going forward should be. We will hear their recommendations of how this annual tool should be practiced and learn the resulting benefits of a Board Assessment from the standpoint of:

    - Helping Directors do their job
    - Improving dialogue between Board and Management
    - Getting the Business Model right and doing real Succession Planning
    - Board Director Succession, including diversity
    - Peer-to-Peer Evaluation; How Directors can add more value to the Board
    - Selecting the Board Leader
    - Replacing a Director who no longer contributes
    - Selecting the ideal Committee Members
    - Involving Management in the Board Assessment Process
