Featured presenters include Jeff Goldthorp with the Federal Communications Commission and Adam Sedgewick from NIST. The June 18 presentation, Telecom Cyber Risk Management, Operational & Technology Requirements will be the first of two sessions focusing on the operational and technology requirements for implementing the framework, including mechanisms for continuous evaluation and improvement. It will also illustrate how companies can create profiles of their current and future risk management capabilities, and prioritize their risk management initiatives.
